morbster, I would go with the US-05. I haven't tried any of those other yeasts with this recipe, but I know I didn't like the White Labs Hefeweizen IV strain in this. The last three on your list all look like they produce a lot of esters and phenolics.Thunderworm, I don't have access to any Kolsch yeasts where I live, and have the following options. Care to share your experience / opinion on the following yeasts? This will be my 3rd brew (previously used US-05 and S-04).
- Safbrew WB-06
- Safbrew T-58 (looks like it could be interesting, but I've never heard anything about this particular strain
- Munich Wheat Beer Yeast
My main goal is to make a delicious beer (as opposed to staying true to the beer style guidelines for American wheat, for example).
