WLP400 - Belgian Wit Ale Yeast - White Labs - 5 gallon batch size
This strain is the pinnacle yeast for Belgian witbiers or white ales. High phenol production contributes an herbal aroma and flavor notes which blends well with herb and fruit adjuncts. Expect nearly 80% attenuation and a slightly lower resulting pH than English or American ale strains creating a dry beer. This yeast is very active when it peaks its fermentation cycle. Pitch at 66-68F and let it rise up 1-2 degrees per day and hold it at 72-75F for 7-14 days. It would not hurt to leave your witbier in the fermenter for an extra 7 days to allow the yeast to flocculate out and clean up its environment.
Flocculation: Low to Medium.
Fermentation Temp: 67-74.
For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast, particularly during warmer months and for orders shipped to warm climates.
