Wyeast 3638 Bavarian Wheat – Premium Liquid Yeast

A complex alternative to the standard German wheat strain profile. This strain produces apple, pear, and plum esters in addition to the dominant banana character. The esters are complemented nicely by clove and subtle vanilla phenolics. The balance can be manipulated towards ester production through increasing fermentation temperature, increasing the wort density, and decreasing the pitch rate. Over pitching can result in a near complete loss of banana character. Decreasing the ester level will allow a higher clove character to be perceived. Sulfur is commonly produced, but will dissipate with conditioning. This strain is very powdery and will remain in suspension for an extended amount of time following attenuation. This is true top cropping yeast and requires fermentor headspace of 33%.

Why Brew With The Activator Smack-Pack System?

Elevate the quality of your homebrews with Wyeast Premium Liquid Yeast. Our one-of-a-kind Smack-Packs double as a yeast viability test and proven quality control, allowing your craft brewing skills to ascend to new heights.

For 35 years, the Wyeast Activator™ is the only product that “proofs” the yeast and shortens lag time when it hits your wort. Activator™ packages include an internal packet which, when smacked, releases its contents into the yeast slurry and revitalizes the cells. The available sugars and nutrients initiate the culture’s metabolism which in turn generates CO₂ and causes swelling of the package, serving as a viability and vitality test as well. Although beneficial, cultures do not need to be activated prior to inoculation.
