Default Yeast alternative


Any suggestions for an alternative to WLP-320? I am looking for a yeast that keeps the same flavor and cloudiness but enhances the aroma (WLP-320 has a small amount of sulfur smell).

Thanks

This beer is fantastic! The only small changes I made was using the Wyeast 3068, 6 cups of juice, 2oz flavoring, and 1 lb of carapils gave it nice lacing and a beautiful white head that lasted all the way!
ABV 5.3, IBU 16 OG 1.053 FG 1.012
It is very refreshing and was just what I was looking for!
I think my next brew will be your Founders Breakfast Clone for this late fall.
Cheers

Great to hear, shohog!

Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be making it this year... But will use the Carapils in the future.

Default v 1.5?


Less than three months and my wife has requested I brew this again. Here's what I used for a 5.5 gal batch. Biggest change was to the yeast. I felt the original yeast had too much of a sulfur smell.

5.5 lbs. 2-row Pils
5.5 lbs. German Wheat Malt
1.0 lb. Cara-Pils/Dextrine
0.55 oz. Mt. Hood Pellets boiled 30 min.
8 cups Watermelon fresh squeezed juice added to secondary
.75 oz. Watermelon Flavoring @ Bottling
1 pkg Safale S-04

I do not recommended using the S-04 yeast. The aroma was more pleasant but it was missing something that the original yeast provided. I may lightly dry hop next time and revert to the original yeast.

My first few batches I used it exclusively, and I still use it to accent the real fruit. Using real fruit is better, IMO. The extract is more Jolly Ranchier. I used the stuff that Williams Brewing sells.

So I was preparing my starter for my anticipated brew day on Saturday the other day and I realized that I grabbed the WLP300 instead of the 320. It is a pure Hefeweizen strain that produces strong banana and clove flavors so I am wondering how this will go over in the watermelon wheat...

I plan to ferment it on the cold side to hopefully minimize the phenols but has anyone brewed this with the 300 yet and if so, how did it turn out for you?

I've been wanting to try this with the WLP300. I'd personally ferment this yeast at 66-68. Please post your results.
