Pure and simple. I tasted it this past weekend, then I tasted one with liquid yeast and the distinction is clear. I actually poured out the dry yeast one and so did the guy who brewed it.

I was curious about that yeast. I'm thinking of making a two 1 gallon batches to compare.

Thanks for confirming it for me. I didn't think it could compare to Wyeast 3068 from Weihenstephan.

Is there a comparable White Labs yeast to 3068?

I wish you would have posted this last week. I did a weizenbock this weekend with WB-6. It certainly smells good fermenting. I'll report back when I rack it to the keg.

At what temp did you ferment? Maybe that was the problem...

Ah, good to know. I saw this at the store and was thinking about giving it a try....well I guess I won't now.

According to this, Wyeast 3068 and WLP300 are the same strain, Weihenstephan 68 strain. Next spring I am going to split a batch and compared the WLP300 and 351 (Weihenstephan 175 strain).

WLP400 is KINDA close...you get the bananas and cloves, but it's no 3068. Having used both, I prefer 3068.

I've used the Brewferm Blanche yeast on a hefe and I thought it gave a pretty darn near identical flavor to the times I've used liquid yeast... Can't speak to the new (Safale?) WB-6 or whatever though.

WLP351.

It's a seasonal thing, though. Get a vial and culture it for use year round!
