Title: Alcohol tolerance of wheat beer yeast
Post by: Nathan on August 22, 2017, 11:52:22 AM
Recently I've been introduced to some high gravity German Wheat beers . Thee ones I've tasted have been crisp and refreshing with lots of clove aroma and the alcohol is a sneaky surprise lurking in the bottom of glass. Of course I want to make one I have had good success making Hiefiwiezen and Dunkelweizen with the Safale dry wheat beer yeast but wonder if  it is up to the task of fermenting a 8-9 % brew

This page http://www.fermentis.com/brewing/homebrewing/product-range/  lets you download the PDF specs of that yeast. It should tell you alcohol tolerance
