Advancing fermentation. Cultivating community.

What began as homebrewers searching for higher quality yeast quickly grew into a
team of dedicated biochemists exploring new ways to advance brewing altogether.

Today, White Labs stands at the intersection of science, education and craft.
Constantly striving for perfection, and in the process continually raising the
bar in the art of fermentation.

Every day, we set out on a single mission: to stretch the limits of science in order
to set new standards in purity and freshness.

From the industry’s first pitchable liquid yeast, to a complete revolution in the way
it’s propagated and packaged, our innovative spirit is tireless.

Our belief is that creating the best products goes hand-in-hand with making the best
use of them. This has inspired a culture of education and collaboration with brewers,
distillers and winemakers the world over.

At White Labs, our core business is making pure pitchable

yeast for beer, wine, cider and spirits. We also supply testing,
conduct educational seminars and classes and consult on a
variety of topics for these industries. It all started more than
22 years ago with a hobby of homebrewing and the simple
desire to make something better.

I was lucky to befriend other homebrewers who would

become some of the world’s greatest professional brewers,
and they needed a better supply of yeast at a time when
Chris White, Ph.D.
pure cultures were not readily available. Yeast is easy to
make but very hard to make well, and any imperfections
can be detected, which makes using fresh pure cultures
extremely important.

As a graduate student at the University of California, San

Diego, I was working in a yeast lab so my homebrewing
friends would ask me to make a little brewer’s yeast on the
side. When I graduated with a Ph.D. in biochemistry, I never
looked back and started White Labs in 1995. Today we have
more than 100 employees, and offices in San Diego, CA;
Davis, CA; Boulder, CO; Asheville, NC; Copenhagen, Denmark
and Hong Kong, China.

I hope we have the opportunity to serve you.

White Labs Yeast
White Labs produces pure liquid yeast in
premier beer regions in the U.S. and Europe
and is dedicated to making fresh yeast cultures
accessible to all in the fermentation industry.
Due to our multiple production locations and
online ordering options, White Labs offers
immediate ordering and quick delivery.

The heart of White Labs is our yeast offerings,

knowledge and support. Our library of strains
has been built through a variety of means – from
breweries to yeast banks around the world. The
yeast is kept cryogenically frozen maintaining
the integrity of the original sample.

In 2015, White Labs invested in a 24-hectoliter

brewhouse that provides all-grain wort to
propagate all our yeast cultures. The brewery also supplies beer for our San Diego, Boulder and Asheville Tasting
Rooms. The brewhouse allows us to use our yeast strains and gather data firsthand. That data is published on our
website and translated in the information we provide our professional and homebrewing customers.

Through our Research and Development team, White Labs has done extensive research on the differences between
dry yeast and liquid yeast. Liquid yeast has enhanced esters, higher flocculation, more concentrated yeast pack and
higher viability after fermentation. Additionally, professional brewers can get multiple generations from liquid yeast
which reduces the overall cost. Yeast contributes more than 500 flavor and aroma compounds and the use
of lab-grown, high-quality liquid yeast creates a cleaner more complex final product. All White Labs yeast comes
with a guarantee that each culture has met our strict quality control standards.

White Labs Strain Collections
White Labs’ strains are categorized as either Core Strains, Vault Strains or Private Strains.

Core Strains are composed of 86 beer, wine and distilling yeast strains including wild yeast and bacteria as well as
WLP600 Kombucha SCOBY. These strains are grown year-round with a production lead time of 1 to 17 days. The
Core Strains are available to professionals, retailers and homebrewers.

White Labs Vault Strains are a collection of specialty strains curated during the more than 22 years White Labs has
been in business. Vault Strains rotate and availability depends on whether the customer is a professional, retailer or
homebrewer. For a current list of strains and availability, please visit whitelabs.com/yeastbank.

How We Make Yeast

Private Strains are yeast
cultures that are banked by
individual customers for future
use. White Labs will test, isolate,
store and propagate your yeast.
Every Private Strain is analyzed
for microbial organisms. The
fermentation of the original
culture is monitored
to ensure optimal performance
and then cryogenically frozen
for a customer to use in the
future. Private strains have a
production lead time of 17 to 30
days and requires a minimum
order of I.5L.

Lastly, White Labs contract

manufactures liquid wine
yeast for Enartis and produces
rare yeast and bacteria strains
for The Yeast Bay and select

White Labs Packaging Options
White Labs offers two packaging options for homebrewers and professionals. The development of PurePitch® was,
and still is, an industry changing advancement that we are very proud to have accomplished. We ship a majority of
our yeast in PurePitch®; however, we still have traditional packaging for some of our strains.

White Labs PurePitch ®

Proudly producing the industry’s first pitchable yeast, White Labs yeast boasts higher cell counts and innovated
PurePitch® packaging which, has never been exposed to the environment after inoculation. Our patented FlexCell™
process for making yeast involves growing and shipping the yeast in the same container, from homebrew to
professional sizes.

Retailers and homebrewers will see two packaging options
depending on the strain. While we produce most of our
strains in PurePitch®, blended strains will continue to be
packaged in vials as we work on a way in which we can
use the FlexCell™ technology to blend different strains.
Additionally, our wild yeast and bacteria strains go through
a unique process that has not been incorporated into
PurePitch® so these strains will be in vials for the near future.

Professionals have two ordering options, PurePitch® or
Custom Pour. If you select the PurePitch® packaging
option while ordering, we may send you multiple
PurePitch® packages or deliver your order in sterile
containers based on our current packaging offerings for
that strain. Blended strains will continue to be packaged
in sterile containers as well as wild yeast and bacteria and
some small batch strains. Private and Vault Strains require
a minimum order of 7BBL (1.5L) and will be packaged in
sterile bottle(s) or carboy(s).

If you select Custom Pour you are guaranteed delivery in sterile bottle(s) or carboy(s). The FlexCell™ process
will still be used to propagate the yeast, but once it’s ready to be packaged, it will be aseptically poured by our
laboratory staff into a sterile container. Custom pours incur additional costs due to increased handling and sterile
packaging and may result in increased lead times.

Yeast Nutrients
Product Size Dosage Description

WLN3000 (1) 10g, 10g/ Servomyces is a nutritional zinc supplement that was
WLN3000-1 (20) 10g pack 10bbl (11hl) originally developed for German brewers by Weihenstephan
WLN3500 (1) 500g pack and the Munich University; it conforms to the restrictions of
Servomyces by Lallemand Reinheitsgebot purity laws. Servomyces enables any yeast
strain to incorporate essential nutrients into its cellular
structure. Tested in breweries around the world, it has been
proven to:
• Cut down fermentation time
• Promote flocculation
• Greatly reduce sulfur compounds
• Improve the health and viability of yeast
• Result in faster, more complete attenuations
• Increase yeast growth for a better harvest
• Improve the quality o f the finished product
• Help reduce levels of diacetyl at the end of primary

WLN1000 1oz 1oz/ White Labs Yeast Nutrient is used to increase the health of
WLN1000-20 (20) 1oz pack 5bbl (5hl) yeast and improve fermentation and re-pitching performance.
White Labs Yeast Nutrient It contains diammonium phosphate (DAP), essential vitamins
and co-factors, nitrogen, amino acids, proteins, peptides and
minerals. An effective boost for first and/or late generation
yeast slurry. If the grist is not 1 00% malt, then White Labs Yeast
Nutrient can help make up for lack of nutrients.
WLDFERM 2.5kg 25g/ Fermaid K is a blend of complex yeast nutrients that supplies
Fermaid K by Lallemand 1bbl (1hl) DAP, alpha-amino nitrogen (derived from yeast extract), sterols,
unsaturated fatty acids, key nutrients (magnesium sulfate,
thiamin, folic acid, niacin, biotin, calcium pantothenate) and
inactive yeast. Fermaid K should be hydrated before adding
to an active fermentation to a void CO2 release and overflowing
of tanks or barrels.
WLDFERMO 2.5kg 40g/ Fermaid O is popular with distillers and winemakers who are
Fermaid O by Lallemand 1bbl (1hl) seeking to use an organic yeast nutrient. Fermaid O is a
blend of inactivated yeast fractions rich in organic nitrogen.
Fermaid O does not contain added ammonia salts (DAP) or
micronutrients. The importance of organic nitrogen from yeasts
is known to be a highly efficient nutrient source for wine
yeasts, especially when compared to inorganic nitrogen from
DAP. In addition, Fermaid O consistently produces lower levels
of negative sulfur compounds, compared with DAP. With its
high content of organic nitrogen, Fermaid O can help
winemakers achieve steady fermentations, while limiting
temperature peaks.
WLDGOFERM 2.5kg 30g/ Go-Ferm provides bioavailable micronutrients in the
Go-Ferm by Lallemand 1bbl (1hl) non-stressful environment of the yeast rehydration water. By

making key minerals and vitamins available to the selected

yeast at the critical beginning of its stressful task, the yeast’s
viability increases and fermentations finish stronger.

Fermentation Enzymes
Product Size Dosage Description

WLN4000 10mL, 1L 10mL/5g A highly specific endoprotease that prevents chill haze in
Clarity Ferm 10L, 20L beer by hydrolyzing haze-active polypeptides where the
hydrogen bonding that causes chill haze occurs. For use
at the beginning of fermentation; Clarity Ferm has been
proven to reduce gluten in beer made with barley and wheat.
Clarity Ferm is made with Brewers Clarex® by DSM.

“[We have experienced] less protein

precipitation in bottled and canned beer.
Less customer complaints of ‘floaties’ in
their IPAs. Dry hopped beers maintain
clarity much better after packaging.“

“We get about an 8°F gain in temp when

filtering. So if we filter normally at 32°F
and get clear beer with Clarity Ferm,
we can filter at 40°F with the same results.
Where we save the most money is on sterile
filters. We now get double the life, 3 to 6
months life, where before we got 1 to
2 months.”

Recommendations for White Labs Pitchable Yeast Cultures
1 Always store the yeast at temperatures between 36-40°F (2-4°C).

2 For the first generation of the new yeast culture, a lighter style beer with a 10–12° Plato gravity is recommended
for best yeast performance. See chart below for high gravity beer. WLN1000 White Labs Yeast Nutrient will help
shorten the fermentation cycle and make the yeast healthier for subsequent generations.

3 Keep yeast in the refrigerator until needed. Do not freeze the culture. Remove yeast at least 2 hours before pitching,
so the slurry can come close to room temperature. To innoculate, sanitize scissors, cut the top left of the bag
and pour in.

4 The fermentation is best started at 70-72°F (21-22°C), even for lagers, and lowered to desired fermentation
temperature after krausen formation or CO2 begins.

5 The initial signs of fermentation should be evident within 12-20 hours depending on the age of the yeast. Successive
generations will have a shorter lag time and faster fermentation. The first complete fermentation usually takes 1-3
days longer because yeast needs to adapt from a laboratory culture to a fermentation environment. When repitching,
it is recommended to do so with more cells because the pitching yeast typically decline in yeast health after

Collection, Storage and Repitching Yeast for Professionals
Most brewery fermentations are carried out with re-used yeast, but the question of how to store and maintain properly
frustrates even the most skilled brewers. It is actually not as difficult as some believe, and there are techniques that
brewers can use to significantly expand the life span of their yeast.

The fact that we can take a by-product of beer production – yeast – save it and reuse it in successive fermentations is
quite unique. We can do this because yeast is still alive and healthy after most beer fermentations. The low alcohol
levels in beer prevent the yeast from dying off, as it does in wine production. The problem for most brewers then is
not whether to reuse yeast, but how to store it and keep it healthy for future brewing sessions.

Yeast is a living organism, and is most happy and healthy when feeding on wort sugars. When fermentation is
complete, they flocculate to the bottom of the fermentor, then go into a resting state. Yeast under beer is fairly
stable, and most brewers agree that this is the best place to store yeast. Note, two crucial factors are temperature
and time.

The yeast cake at the bottom of a conical fermentor may rise in temperature. Yeast is an excellent insulator, and heat
can build up in the middle of the slurry, 10-15°F (-12-9°C) above the beer temperature, typically for very flocculent strains.
When yeast heats up, its life span plummets. If the cone is not chilled, effects are even more significant. For this reason,
brewers try to remove yeast slurry shortly after fermentation is complete, and the beer is chilled. Once yeast is removed,
you ideally want to use the yeast immediately. This allows little time for yeast to deteriorate and die. However, this is not
always possible, due to brew schedules.

The most common way to store yeast for future use is to put it into 5-gallon, stainless steel soda kegs. These work well,
and the lid can be modified to your desire. These kegs have the many small parts and gaskets that can harbor bacteria,
which need to be properly sanitized. Also, carbon dioxide can build up quickly in yeast slurry, and if kept under pressure,
will cross the cell walls and kill yeast cells. Pressures over 35 PSI can be toxic to yeast, and soda kegs are rated over 100
PSI. So if you use these kegs, shake and vent pressure on a regular basis, at least once per day.

Other vessels can be used for yeast storage. Brewers often shun plastic, because it scratches easy and scratches
can harbor bacteria and wild yeast however, this can actually be a good choice. Use a high grade (and food grade)
plastic (polyethylene, polypropylene), buckets exclusively for yeast storage. The advantage of plastic is that yeast slurry
is visible, so you can evaluate the condition and quantity of yeast by sight. For example, if you pull off yeast slurry and it
is very runny, without counting cells under a microscope, you will be unsure of how much yeast to use in the next batch.
By using a plastic bucket to store yeast, you can see how much yeast settles out, and pitch accordingly. Plastic buckets
also need to be vented occasionally.

Lager Yeast Options for the Craft Brewer

1 To start fermentation at 48-55°F, order 2-3 times the amount of yeast (reference “Guide to White Labs
Yeast Sizing” on page 35).

Cool wort to hybrid/ale temperatures (60-65°F/15-18°C), pitch yeast and maintain temperatures until signs
2 of fermentation are evident, CO2 formation or pH decrease. This will take about 24 hours. Begin to lower
fermentation temperatures until desired lager temperatures are reached. In order to maintain vitality, it’s
recommended to lower 10°F (0.5-1°C) per hour over a 12 hour period.

Use a propagation step. Grow in 5 to 10 percent of your fermentors final volume (i.e. for a 20bbl, 1-2bbls
3 of wort). Maintain propagation at the same temperature you are going to pitch your yeast. After 24 to 48
hours, add propagation to fermentor.

After the initial pitch, it’s recommended to use higher pitching rates. Collect 2-3 times the normal slurry.
4 Perform a cell count, vitality analysis and a microbial stability test on the slurry to determine pitch rate
from 1.2 to 2 million cells per milliliter of wort per degree Plato.

Making a Yeast Starter – Technique for Homebrew
Make up a 0.5-1L of wort, gravity ~1.040, hopped as normal. Boil for 30 minutes, cool to room temperature. Pitch one
vial or PurePitch® package, shake well and let sit for 1-2 days. Little to no activity will be seen in the starter, since this is a
very small volume compared to the total quantity of yeast pitched. The yeast in a starter may complete within a couple of
hours. But a layer of yeast should start forming at the bottom after 1-2 days. The wort on top of the yeast may be either
decanted, or left in and pitched with the whole volume. Most pitch the whole volume, but if the starter gets to the point
of 5 gallons, then we recommend decanting the wort off the yeast.

Typical starter volumes for 5 gallon/20L:

• To activate the yeast: 0.5L
• To regenerate expired yeast: 1L
• To brew a high gravity beer: 2L
• To brew a lager beer, starting fermentation 50-55°F (10-13°C): 2-4L

Wine Yeast Culture Build-up for Fermentation (1,000 Gallons)

Using a 200 gallon inoculum (1.5L) from White Labs, a culture build-up can be performed to prepare yeast for
large-scale fermentation.

1 Obtain approximately 8L clean settled grape juice (either pasteurized, or juice that was treated with 25-50ppm
SO2 at crushing) and add 2g/L yeast nutrient.

2 Transfer to a clean container with a loosely fitting cap, lid, or clean piece of foil.

3 Inoculate with the 1.5L yeast culture and hold at 75-85°F (24-30°C).

4 Aerate culture to improve growth rates for 48 hours.

5 Add starter culture to must or juice at 2-5% by volume.

If additional build-up is needed, transfers should be made within 24 to 48 hours once juice is actively bubbling, as the
yeast are at full growth at this time. Culture can be expanded by transferring to larger volumes by 10-fold.

LM5020 Brewing Microbiology - Third Edition

Edited by: Fergus Priest and Ian Campbell

Brewing Microbiology serves as a reference book and a laboratory manual. It is also of value to technical brewers
who must keep abreast of current developments, as well as quality controllers and laboratory research workers in
the brewing and related food and beverage industries.

The microbiology of brewing is a diverse subject covering both the production of beer and its stability to spoilage.
The third edition of this extremely successful book gives an in-depth coverage of all aspects of brewing microbiology.
It includes a new introductory chapter that describes the contribution of microbiology to modern brewing practice
and sets the scene for more specialized chapters to follow. In addition, there are new chapters on microbiological
methods and microbiology tailored to the smaller-sized brewer.

LM5025 Studies on Fermentation

Author: Louis Pasteur

In 1876, Louis Pasteur published his ground-breaking volume, Études sur la Bière, soon translated into English as Studies
On Fermentation. The book changed the course of brewing during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, representing a
huge leap forward in the scientific understanding of the processes involved in beermaking. Brewers around the globe put
Pasteur’s findings to work in their breweries, and thus plunged the industry headlong into the modern era.

In tribute to Pasteur’s tremendous contributions to brewing science, Studies On Fermentation has been reprinted exactly
as it appeared when first released in English, complete with all of Pasteur’s illustrations. An original 1879 edition was
digitally scanned, professionally enhanced and reproduced in a hard cover format.
