Default hefeweizen yeast

so a while back i brewed the AHS bavarian hefeweizen. i used white labs hefeweizen yeast.
this is possibly my favorite beer i've ever made.



a kit i got from midwest is using nottinghan yeast. are there major differences?

should i stop by my lhbs and get the white labs and use the nottingham for something else?

Midwest gave you Nottingham for a hefeweizen? Sounds like an error on their part. Definitely buy the Hefeweizen yeast as it will impart certain flavors that you'll want in your beer as opposed to the neutral Nottingham.

Nothing wrong with the Notty, just not in a hefe.

Yeah, you cannot get a real hefe without the right yeast, becuase that is a primary part of the style.

You definitely want to change yeasts for a hefe. WLP380 has worked great for me in the past. Save the Notty for the next Pale Ale or IPA you do. It is dry, so will keep for a long time.

I used wyeast 3068 before and liked it. I just ordered for morebeer and had to get WLP300 instead. I hope it's as good.
