I followed the directions and tips on the White Labs website under “Homebrew Starter Tips,” only adding one additional ingredient – yeast nutrient. I read about it online, and my local home brew store also mentioned this would be a good addition.  Having a stir plate would sure make this process easier, but it’s not completely necessary if you don’t have one.

How to Make a Yeast Starter

A yeast starter is essentially a mini batch of beer. The difference is that whereas you brew a batch of beer to have a tasty beverage, you make a yeast starter to make more yeast. So while you need to take into account flavor and aroma when brewing, the only thing you need to focus on with a starter is growing healthy yeast.

Each vial of White Labs liquid yeast is designed to be used directly in 19 litres, hence the term "pitchable yeast." Each vial is equivalent in cell count to a 600ml starter, or 75-150 billion cells. One vial will usually start fermentation in 19 litres in 5-15 hours at 21°C. If a faster start is desired, or if initial gravity is over 1.070, we recommend a 600-1500ml starter be made.

If you have any issues with your yeast please contact us with the production date on the yeast and details of your wort (ABV, Volume, O2 method). Unfortunately we are not able to replace any yeast or ingredients if the brewer has not followed our guide and therefore not used the yeast correctly.

According to Matthew Kunzman of Mr. Malty, the average amount of cells in a dry yeast package is about 20 billion cells per gram. One of the more popular dry yeast strain US-05 (the Chico strain) comes with 11.5 grams of dry yeast, so approximately 230 billion cells. The first advantage of dry yeast is that one package is typically enough for the average 5 gallon batch, with an Ale pitching rate (.75 million cells per mL of wort per degree plato) and an OG of up to 1.065.

A.  Our attention for looking for mutations hasn’t changed with the new technology. We built a big back end to our yeast production at the beginning. We have a specialized team that works with freezes – check for mutations, by specialized plating, genetic analysis and performance. We are constantly checking for mutations. In addition we minimize time we have yeast on plates and our propagation is limited to 17 days. These tools and personal that separates us from being a yeast propagator and we maintain these yeast in there integrity is one of our missions.
