Weizen 1 - Escarpment Labs

Made by Guelph's own Escarpment Labs Yeast Company. This is their Weizen yeast. It is the classic German Hefeweizen strain, with ample potential to create the characteristic clove and banana flavours. Clove character can be emphasized though a ferulic acid rest in the mash, as well as by using a lower fermentation temperature. Banana ester (isoamyl acetate) character can be emphasized by slightly underpitching, creating a more fermentable wort, and/or using a higher fermentation temperature.
