Wyeast Laboratories Liquid Yeast
Northern Brewer is proud to offer the expansive Wyeast Liquid Yeast lineup.
Wyeast Laboratories has been an industry leader in liquid yeast out of Hood River, Oregon for the last 30 plus years. Wyeast Labs carries a large amount of strains and beer nutrient in their regular lineup for brewing beer, wine making, mead making, cider making and wild fermentations. Their staple of Wyeast 1056 American Ale yeast is one of the original commercial brewing yeasts, known as the “chico” yeast strain.
They revolutionized the homebrewer’s yeast experience when they introduced their innovation of the Smack Pack Activator. The Wyeast Activator is a sterile nutrient pack inside the main foil pouch that provides a “jump start” to the yeast once the nutrient pack is popped. When the main foil pouch swells after the Activator is released this provides a built in viability test as well as reducing lag time. Their packaging provides a peace of mind many home brewers appreciate. Wyeast’s packaging states they provide 100 Billion cells per pack. Wyeast recommends using 1 pack in beers with up to a 1.065 original gravity.
