100 Billion Yeast Cells - The Direct Pitch ACTIVATOR™ contains 100% Pure Liquid Yeast plus an internal nutrient packet. This Wyeast Smack-pack™ system allows yeast metabolism to begin prior to inoculation as well as providing proof of yeast health. Our ACTIVATOR™ is designed to inoculate 5 gallons of wort with the same pitch rate recommended by professional brewers.
Package of Wyeast Scottish Ale-Direct Pitch Activator for Brewing Beer.
Activator™ packages include a sterile liquid nutrient pouch that, when “smacked”, releases its contents into the yeast slurry and “activates” the package. The available nutrients initiate the culture’s metabolism which in turn generates CO2 and causes swelling of the package. This process will reduce lag times by preparing the yeast for a healthy fermentation prior to inoculation.
Wyeast Laboratories has been producing pure liquid yeast cultures for commercial breweries and home brewers for over 20 years. Over time, we have added many new specialty strains to our line-up, as well as refining our packaging. We now offer a packaging size and style to meet all your brewing needs.
