Fermentis · Safale Wheat Beer WB-06
- 12.0 – 25.0°C
Fermentis Safale Wheat Beer (WB-06) is a specialized, dry yeast tailored for wheat beer brewing. This type of yeast is celebrated for its exceptional performance and versatility, handling an impressive alcohol tolerance of up to 10.5%. With an attenuation rate of 86.0%, it brings forth a significant amount of fermentable sugars, yielding a clean and balanced profile for the finished beer. The yeast's flocculation is characterized as low, implying that it remains suspended in the brew for a more extended period, contributing to the characteristic haze of wheat beers.
This yeast performs optimally at a fermentation temperature range of 12.0-25.0°C (53.6-77.0°F), allowing for a broad scope of brewing environments and schedules. The Safale Wheat Beer (WB-06) yeast is typically used in a variety of beer styles, including traditional German Weizens, American Wheat Beers, and Belgian Witbiers. It imparts a compelling flavor profile marked by prominent fruity esters and spicy phenols, particularly reminiscent of banana, clove, and vanilla, which are highly characteristic of classic wheat beers. This makes the WB-06 yeast an excellent choice for brewers aiming to create authentic and flavorful wheat beers.
