About this evolutionary packaging

  • White Labs had a goal in creating PurePitch Next Generation for Homebrewers.  This new evolution provides a product that will allow hobbyists and small scale brewers a convenient and modular package to pitch a consistent 7.5 million cells/mL; a commercially recommended pitching rate for standard ale ranges. The same package has proven to be an optimization to PurePitch for larger professional brewers for over a year.
  • Now with more yeast, get a foolproof fermentation without a starter. Following a commercially recommended pitching rate allowing you to pitch like the pros!
  • PurePitch Next Generation, an evolution of White Labs’ PurePitch – the most superior and consistent yeast on the market – has been made even better with new packaging powered by FlexCell Technology for ease of use and a pitch rate resulting in a foolproof fermentation every time.

This strain has more similarities to an English strain than WLP001 California Ale yeast. It is a big ester producer, showcasing notes of cherry and apple which compliment pale ales, blonde and brown ales. Typically leaves some residual, lager-like sulfur compounds in finished beer.
