Please note: It is highly recommended that a cold pack be purchased when ordering liquid yeast. High Gravity cannot guarantee the viability of liquid yeast if it fails to work unless it was purchased with a cold pack. You can add it to the order by checking the cold pack box near the bottom of the page before adding the yeast to the cart.
The Private Collection Program
At Wyeast Laboratories, their goal of helping both professional- and home-brewers brew beers that are "true-to-style” has led to the collection of several hundred strains of yeast over the past 20+ years. While their regular product line of yeast strains is extensive, this represents only a fraction of the strains in their archives.
Therefore, they have their Private Collection - featuring strains from their archives, new strains, and even occasionally Proprietary Strains from craft brewery partners such as Rogue Ales Pacman Ale yeast and Flying Dog Ale yeast. They feature 3 strains in each Private Collection which runs for 3 months.
The Private Collection is interactive. You may voice your requests for the strains they feature by contacting them at firstname.lastname@example.org
. While they cannot respond to every message, they will read and log every message, and use this feedback when determining what strains to include in future promotions. If there is a strain you’d like them to feature, a brewery whose Proprietary Strain you’d like to brew with, an award-winning beer recipe you’ll allow them to post on their website, or if you’d like to provide them with any feedback at all… please contact them!
