Wyeast Liquid Wine Yeast

Current stock: 0

[WY640] These are liquid yeast strains that have been extracted from notable locations from around the world. Each heavy-foil pouch of yeast is adequate for starting a vigorous fermentation in up to 6 gallons of must. You can open the foil pouch and pitch the liquid yeast directly into the must, or you can pre-start the yeast within the foil pouch by bursting the nutrient smash-pack that is contained within. Each 125ml pouch comes with complete directions.

Please make your choice of yeast strain under "Options" above.
