INIS-544

Prost Weizen*

Great for a Northern-style Hefeweizen, because this strain produces less banana and fruity esters and more clove and vanilla phenols.

*Prost Weizen* has been identified using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to contain the glucoamylase gene (STA1), which can be an indicator of S. cerevisiae var. diastaticus. As such, this strain has the ability to utilize some dextrins which are unfermentable to most species of S. cerevisiae, and thus achieve a very high level of attenuation. However, this strain is not considered a contaminant and will not over attenuate finished beer when a high level of attenuation is expected.

Works great for these beer styles
