Yeasts

Yeast plays an important part in the formation of the flavour profile of any fermented beverage, especially in beers. While the yeasts supplied with our beer kits are excellent, they are designed to be robust and forgiving, which comes at the price of a more neutral flavour profile. Using a specialized yeast for a given beer style will generally result in a better beer. However keep in mind that with specialized yeasts the fermentation temperature is more critical than with the yeasts supplied with our beer kits.

In order to be able to offer these imported yeasts to our customers at affordable prices, some or all of the yeasts on offer here may have been repacked from bulk, under sterile conditions in multi-layer barrier foils and under vacuum or inert gas, thus preserving quality and purity.
