Default What Yeast to use for making Hacker-Pschorr Weiss?

Hello everyone......I want to try to make a beer similair to Hacker-Pschorr Weiss. I got this info off Wikipedia:

Brewed with pure spring water, Hacker-Pschorr's centuries-old, exclusive yeast strain, Hallertau hops and 60% malted wheat and 40% malted barley. 5.5% alcohol by volume. 4.3% alcohol by weight. Original Gravity 12.5%. 156 calories per 12 ounce serving. Bitterness 13 EBU. Beverage Testing Institute Rating - 94 (Exceptional)

Seems like a good place to start, but does anyone know what Yeast I should try? I guess a Wheat Yeast, but any ideas would be helpful. Or boil times etc.....

Thanks, Paul

I made the Hacker Pschorr Dark a couple months ago and used WL380 and fermented at 64 degrees. There's a lot of banana there but it was great. You could use Wyeast 3638 or WLP351. Clone Brews uses the 3638.
