Industry Leading Pitch Rates
Our recommendation of 1L/BBL yields a pitch rate of 11 million cells/ml. This pitch rate is higher than any other available in the industry- you'll see shorter lag times, shorter tank residency times, and more consistent fermentations. Healthier yeast yields more re-pitches, higher generations and lower yeast costs.
Are you brewing high gravity beer or looking for a specific flavor or aroma profile? No problem! Imperial is happy to dial in custom quantities based off batch size, starting gravity and desired pitch rate. We're also always happy to chat about propagations, give us call or send us an email today!
