This Special Wheat beer is brewed with a lager yeast. This unique combination creates a refreshing and very drinkable beer with subtle fermentation aromas well balanced with herbal and spicy hop notes.
For a better wort filtration, add 2% of rice hulls to the mash. Also, don’t forget this is a lager yeast and the fermentation temperatures have to be appropriate for it.
