White Labs liquid yeast43 products
White Labs Liquid yeast for pure fermentation and authentic beer flavour styles.
While we do our best to plan, schedule, and ensure that we have sufficient stock on all White labs strains, on some occasions we may run out of stock due to a number of factors including high demand, low concentration on cultures, and QC-related issues.
As we often order fortnightly, we urge you to think ahead for your yeast requirements. For those brewers who like to plan recipes ahead, any White Labs yeast not listed on our web site can be requested and we will imported specially.
White Labs Pitchable Yeast is made to contain over 100 billion yeast cells. The PurePitch packages contain a minimum of 40 -50mls.
Lag times are typically between 12-24 hours for a normal strength brew.
A yeast starter is used to initiate cell activity or increase the cell count before using it to make your beer. The yeast will grow in this smaller volume, usually for 1-2 days, which then can be added to 5 gallons of wort.
While a starter is not always necessary, White Labs recommends making a starter if the Original Gravity is over 1.050, if the yeast is past its "Best Before" date, if you are pitching lager yeast at temperatures below 18C0 (65F0), or if a faster start is desired.
PROTECT YOUR YEAST PURCHASE: Liquid yeast is sensitive to heat therefore we recommend you purchase liquid yeast as a separate item in the shopping cart and select EXPRESS POST (500gm post satchel $9.95) at the checkout.
BEST VALUE: You can get UP TO 4 liquid yeast sachets in a 500gm express post sachet along with an ice pack. For added protection we have ice packs for $1.00.
If purchasing 2 or more White Labs liquid yeast there is NO charge for an ice pack.
If you also want to purchase heavier brewing items (not suited to express post) we suggest you purchase them as a separate sale at the checkout so that parcel rates apply.
If you are within Fastways next day delivery schedule (Sydney, Brisbane suburbs, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, northern N.S.W (coastal) then you do not need to use express post.
