Why Dry Yeast?

Yeast regularly contains under 7% water while dry brewing. Rigid standards of quality are upheld during processing to refrain from microbial pollution. The exceptional strength of dry yeast takes into account rigorous QC testing to guarantee that under 1 wild yeast cell or bacterium per million cells of yeast is detected while brewing.

When it comes to most strains, 1g of dry yeast includes at least 5 billion suitable cells; however, the figure will shift marginally depending on the batch. Please contact us with any questions.
