how many white labs yeast pack will fit in insulated mailer or do i need one for each?
Theodore Kluska on Sep 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I typically place 3 yeast packs in a mailer along with an ice pack. If you use the larger envelope then 6 with 2 ice packs works well.
Is anyone getting strong sulfur smells from this yeast during primary fermentation?
Matt Mcdonald on Jun 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. There are a lot of reasons a sulfuric smell could come from a fermentation. There are potential sources in the brewing process as well as the fermentation. If the flavor and aroma persists there are ways to curb it. After fermentation and racking to leave the yeast behind you can add either Copper Sulfate or even just some very clean Pennies to absorb the sulfur compounds. We hope that helps. Cheers!

First experience with liquid yeast. No lag time. Immediate action with no starter required. Full attenuation in record time. I will be using liquid going forward.

Awesome neutral yeast
Used for a Pale Ale and it's great. It "gets out of the way" and lets both the malt and hops shine. Excellent yeast

Did not like this yeast. Seems that the yeast was very weak. May not use White Labs again.

great fermentation
This was my first experience using White Labs. So far so good, I had great fermentation within 12 hours. Fermentation lasted longer using white labs than another yeast I used in the patch. I cant comment on taste as I did not bottle yet
