yeast for Shock Top Wheat clone

(1/3) > >>

Kaiser:
Does anyone know what yeast would go well for a Shock Top Wheat clone? My wife likes this beer and want's me to brew a beer just like that.

When I had the beer I didn't notice phenolics, so the yeast should not have the typical Belgian phenolic character. The Witbier strain descriptions from WL and WY mention phenolics which is why they may not work as well.

Are there any commercial Wits from which I can culture yeast?

I haven't had it in years, but I'd probably think about something neutral like California ale. SafAle S-33 might be a good choice too. It is relatively neutral for a belgian yeast.

erockrph:
I'm not a fan of the beer, but I think I'd go with an American Wheat strain like WY1010.

Probably an even better idea. I don't remember anything witty about it, or shocking for that matter.

Kaiser:
I was thinking that too. I hate to buy Witbier yeast and then find out that it is too funky for what I want it to be.
