(BY640-1084) This particular strain of liquid beer yeast is ideal for darker, fuller homebrewed beers where higher alcohol is important. When allowed to ferment at lower temperatures (62°F. to 65°F.) it will give a character profile the is clean and crisp with a hint of fruitiness. When fermented at warmer temperatures more layered flavors and esters will be added to the brew.

These are "Direct Pitch Activators™" designed specifically for brewing beer at home. Each pouch contains 100% pure liquid beer yeast. Over 100 billion yeast cells are in each pouch. This is enough to easily ferment 5 gallons of homebrew. Also inside the pouch is an internal nutrient packet. This is the Wyeast Smack-Pack. By smacking and breaking open the nutrient pack within the pouch you are able to pre-start your beer yeast before adding it to your wort.
