Introducing PurePitch Next Generation!

Developed from feedback from brewers, PurePitch Next Generation is easier to use, more flexible, and far more reliable!

It combines the ease of a bottle with the innovation of PurePitch, providing a modular pouch with a cap and a consistent cell concentration intended to pitch at 7.5 million cells/ml; a commercially recommended pitching rate to ensure a foolproof fermentation.

Increased Fermentation Speed
As demand for higher pitch rates have been steadily rising, White Labs has optimized the cell count of PurePitch Next Generation to ensure brewers see consistent, clean, and speedy fermentations. The consistent pitch rates help shorten lag times resulting in quicker gravity drops.

Increased Viability
Through process improvements and laboratory analysis, White Labs monitors the glycogen content of the yeast cells to give them more energy when starting a fermentation. PurePitch Next Generation features a breathable proprietary dual-layer film that is designed to allow for a more effective off-gassing that reduces product inflation and delivers higher viability and shelf life of the yeast.
