The Private Collection Program
At Wyeast Laboratories, our 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 our regular product line of yeast strains featured in our Propagator and Activator packages includes 46 strains for beer and 14 more for wine making, this represents only a fraction of the strains in our archives.
Therefore, we expose our Private Collection - featuring strains from our archives, new strains as we obtain them, and even occasionally Proprietary Strains from our craft brewery partners such as Rogue Ales Pacman Ale yeast and Flying Dog Ale yeast. We feature up to 3 strains in each Private Collection which runs for 3 months.
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.
Our Private Collection is interactive. You may voice your requests for the strains we feature by contacting us at email@example.com
. While we cannot respond to every message, we 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 us to feature, a brewery whose Proprietary Strain you’d like to brew with, an award-winning beer recipe you’ll allow us to post on our website, or if you’d like to provide us with any feedback at all… please contact us!
