Anybody ever used the Safbrew T-58 dry yeast? It is described as a European style yeast good for dunkelweissen and German style wheat beers.

T58 is closer in flavor profile to the Belgian strains. Are you sure you aren't thinking of WB06?

This is the one I am looking at. It comes with the dunkelweissen kit the morebeer.com offers. I was thinking of using it for a hefeweissen.

It is a little spicy, peppery. It is also very quick. I like it.

So could I be bottling a medium OG beer, say 1.05, in about ten days?

Yes you could. I usually keep it about 63 deg and it will knock down the gravity in 2 days, then give it awhile to clean up after itself.

I am using this at the moment with a brown belgian ale. OG was around 1.040 before I added sugar and it was down to 1.015ish overnight. Added 1kg of golden syrup on Day 2 and it's now down to around 1.010 on Day 3 and still bubbling away. Fermented on the low end (but I did pitch the yeast while the wort was on the warm side). While the wort was cooling I rehydrated the yeast in a cup of wort and water. Smelled delicious and was bubbling furiously when I pitched it. I reckon I will be using this again.

I just used it on Saturday in a Clementine Wit that I made and it bubbled like crazy at 58 degrees for two days and has now stopped. It smells great, but I am going to force myself to wait until this Saturday to take a gravity sample.
