Wyeast

In 1986 Wyeast founders David Logsdon and Jeannette Kreft-Logsdon envisioned a market for a unique product with an innovative design. The Smack-pack, filled with pure liquid yeast cultures and featuring a built in activator, was born and revolutionized the home brewing industry. Today, Wyeast Laboratories produces a vast array of cultures for home enthusiasts to make beer, wine, cider, mead, sake or distilled beverages.

Do I need to make a starter for an Activator?
No. The Activator is designed to deliver professional pitch rates (6 million cells/ ml.) when directly added to 5 gallons of wort. ( <1.060 at 70 degrees). However, if a package is slow to swell, suspected of being mishandled, or if the date is approaching the six month shelf life it is a good idea to build the culture up with a starter. High gravity or low temperature fermentations require higher pitch rates. This can be achieved with inoculating with additional packages or making a starter.

All liquid yeast is shipped with a complementary ice pack, so that the yeast will arrive healthy and viable to your door.
