Bavarian beer yeast, more commonly known as “Weissbier” yeast, is the unique ale yeast that ferments one of Germany’s most iconic styles; the Hefeweizen. During fermentation the yeast produces both esters and phenols, common for ale yeasts, but this one creates flavours of bananas, bubblegum, clove, and pepper spices.
