Has anyone used a Wyeast 3944 belgian wit strain versus the recommended Hefe IV yeast? I have a yeast cake that is about to open up. Any thoughts? Can I pour my wort directly onto the yeast cake or will it be better suited to wash the yeast and re pitch? Thanks in advance.

I have used a few different wheat and wit yeasts on this as well as US-05 and found that they are all good, but there really is nothing quite like the Hefe IV. It seems to give a rounder, more fruity flavor that lends itself to the lime. That being said, they have all been very good.

I would not repitch on an entire cake, as you will be seriously overpitching - this can lead to off flavors that you don't want. The yeast really need to go through a replication stage - especially in a wheat beer - to develop the flavors and esters that we are looking for.

Meaning no disrespect - No, it doesn't. Post 1 on Page 1 on this thread doesn't say anything about the batch size. I've looked at it several times, but nope still not there. So is it 5 like anyone would think, or is it 6?

I plan on brewing this on Friday, and having plugged in all the info planning on it being a 5 gallon batch now has me wondering.

It's 6. I've brewed it twice, one lemon lime and one grapefruit, it's a good one.

Just looked again 'cause I was certain it was in the first post as well. When viewed on my phone, I don't see the batch size but now that I'm on my computer, it very clearly shows 6 gallons.

That could be where the miscommunication is.

Happy brewing!
