Yeast is the only component of your beer or wine that we just can't do without. We rely on yeast, a single celled fungus, to consume the sugars in our recipes and convert them into alcohol. Without yeast to create alcohol (ethanol), we could not have beer or wine. We love yeast!
We stock a tremendous variety of yeast strains so that we can provide you with just the right yeast for your beer, wine, cider or mead.
