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 is a moderate phenol producer with clove-like flavour and aromatic notes present in the finished beer. Some fruit-forward ester production provides a balance between fruit and spice aroma and flavours. This strain ferments and flocculates well, making it an easy-to-use option for saison and farmhouse ales.  This strain has a more fruity ester production than White Labs WLP565 and also ferments faster.
