Danstar Munich Classic Ale Yeast vs.Munich Wheat Beer Yeast
« on: September 03, 2016, 01:13:19 PM »
  I have a pack of each of these and was wondering if anyone has tried them both and what your preferences are?
  I am thinking of brewing up a Dunkleweissen or Roggenbier.

I haven't tried them both but I've been happy with the Munich wheat yeast. Dunno about roggenbier but it should make a fine dunklwweizwn.

I have not used these yet but I intend to try WB-06 based on good reviews from others.  However I have not seen very good reviews from the Danstar version.  Perhaps all that is needed is to stress the yeast and severely underpitch, like 1/8 to 1/6 the packet for 5 gallons.  That's what I'll do.

   The discription for the Munich yeast says " Aroma is estery to both palate and nose with typical banana notes."
   The Classic says "Aroma and flavor have balanced fruity esters and spicy phenol notes"
       I am going to brew the Roggenbier.  I think I would prefer spicy phenols to banana. So I'll probably use the Classic.
