We will not replace or refund shipped liquid yeast that arrives warm/hot under any circumstances. Adding an icepack is an option that may minimize issues when weather is warm or hot in New Jersey, your state, or anywhere in between. Additionally, you may want to have liquid yeast shipped separately with an express shipping method such as UPS next day if you are outside of UPS one-day ground zones. Orders with liquid yeast, being shipped to areas with longer than 1-2 day shipping, will ship on Mondays or Tuesdays.

This strain produces a balance of phenolics and esters. Nutmeg, clove, and spice are more dominant than the banana and bubble gum aroma. Pitching rate and temperature will dramatically affect the flavor and aroma of this strain. Traditional brewing techniques suggest underpitching to produce more classic characteristics of the style. This strain has low flocculation and minor sulfur production.

Introducing PurePitch Next Generation, an evolution of White Labs’ PurePitch® – the most superior and consistent yeast on the market – made even better with new packaging for ease of use, and verifiable quality and consistency to help you make the absolute best beer possible.

A few highlights of the PurePitch Next Generation enhanced packaging:

  • New incorporated handles for ease of usage and storage.
  • New more breathable, proprietary, dual-layer film, allowing more effective off-gassing and reduced package expansion for optimal yeast health.
  • New perfected pitching rates and online calculator at yeastman.com for custom recommendations to achieve perfect fermentation based on beer type, batch size, temperature, and gravity.

Bobby's thoughts: Whitelabs has once again upped the anti on yeast technology. Sure, there are other labs packing 200B cells in a single pack but none of them have Pure Pitch packaging technology. Why does it matter? Traditional yeast packaging tech, such as vials, cans, and smackpacks etc typically lose more than 20% yeast viability per month of cold storage from the date of packaging. Purepitch remains 99% viable. It gets even worse at 3 months. Typical packaging viability goes all the way down to 33% while purepitch is at 91%. There is no practical way to control the age of the pack when you're shopping whether online or in person. Even the best intentioned retailers are forced to sell packs a couple/few months old if they are going to stock the maximum number of strains. Buying yeast with purepitch technology takes out the question of viability off the table so you can plan you pitch rates (or starter sizes) well in advance.
