Developed for the production of flavorful wheat beers, specifically the classic Belgian Witbier, Fermentis SafAle™ BW-20 imparts neutral fruity flavors and the style’s desired notes of clove and pepper.  Against this mild backdrop traditional additions such as coriander and citrus peel shine bright.  

This strain leaves small amounts of maltotriose unfermented, contributing additional mouthfeel to the beer. Expect medium sedimentation to form without clumps, which appears as a powdery haze when resuspended in the beer.
