    Greetings all,
    Need to get a batch of weissbier going for hockey season and my local store was out of 3056, and my normal online suppliers seem to be out of stock also. Anyone have any suggestions for something similar i could use instead, I am not a fan of weihenstephan 3068.
    Thanks for any tips
    GO PENS

    I like 3333 because it's the only hi-floc wheat yeast anywhere. That might not matter for your brew

    I like to browse all my yeasts here: http://www.mrmalty.com/yeast.htm

    WLP300 is a really great strain, WLP380 Hefeweizen IV is also very good. I've also really been wanting to try the Fermentis dry WB-06 for some time.

    I'd look at Mangrove Jack M-20 in the dry yeast category. I haven't used it but if it's as good a yeast as the M-21 Belgian Wit, it would perform very well. I've used the WB-06...serviceable but kind of meh. Might respond well with the right mash and fermentation temps.

    Thanks for tips guys, I discovered Wyeast 3638 and going to try that one since I prefer a low floc yeast ( should have mentioned that in original post) so that I can have some left in beer for bottle conditioning.

    Happy brewing all
