Default Danstar Munich yest

Just made a Dunkelweizen kit from AHB, and when i disolved the yeast in warm water, the yeast didnt really seem to dissolve...really much at all. I let it sit for 25 mins in 90* water. Is this normal for that yeast? Most of it still seemed to look like tiny little tubes when i pitched.

can't say whether or not it's normal for that yeast, but i'm sure it'll be fine. let me know how you like that yeast, i didn't have good results.

i just didn't get much in the way of traditional hefe yeast characteristics out of it, but i didn't have any temp control at the time and may have fermented it too cool... not really sure.

I will let you know. I am ready to drink a Dunkelweizen that was a vigirous fermentation and was on the yeast for 14 days. Fermented at 68 deg.

Munich is OK, for wheats. Better than WB-06, not as good as liquid yeast.

I keep a couple of packs around for backup, in case I have a washed yeast failure.

I've never heard any good stories about Danstar Munich. I'll stick with Wyeast 3068...

I have a Safale S-33, its for Belgian style wheats. I might end up using that. I know it wont be a dunkelweizen then, but it'll save me from driving 120 miles round trip to get a $2 pack of yeast.

Well, i guess my Munich was dead. I got a 3068 Activator and pitched it yesterday at lunch and by 6pm i was getting Krausen, and by 10pm i had to change the airlock over to a blowoff tube. It is churnin' and burnin' now
