maiden voyage white labs pure pitch
« on: July 17, 2015, 10:33:41 AM »
using WLP001 pure pitch today for first time. as instructed, one pouch is supposed to be enough to pitch directly into wort with OG of 1.070 or lower. my APA is 1.050 OG and the yeast pouch was produced June 28th.

Throwing caution to the wind and following white labs guidance- no starter!   

i will  follow up with results.

Is the yeast count in "pure pitch" larger than the one in White Lab vials?

Yes but that's just part it. Read this:

What is the cell count per pouch?
It's too close to home
And it's too near the bone

Interesting to see them jumping on the "pouch" bandwagon ala Wyeast.

They are a bit different. The yeast is grown in a massive pouch and the pouch is subdivided into little pouches. They say it is more sanitary compared to packaging separately.

Interesting as I have never had any issues with sanitation from the Wyeast packs.  But hey, when my LHBS gets some of the new WL pouches in, I am sure I will pick 'em up!

Marketing BS, yes. But in my region Wyeast is very hard to get except online. White Labs is the only game in town. The new pouch plus the east coast production facility are exciting for me.

WL has a credibility problem. Growing yeast in a pouch doesn't help that.
