Description

STRAIN: Wyeast 3538-PC LEUVEN PALE ALE

Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

A complex alternative to the standard German wheat strain profile of 3068 Weihenstephan Weizen. 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 fermenter headspace of 33%.
