Our HefeFarm® delivers fresh and sterile pure yeasts direct from the propagation phase. Your major advantage: These yeasts can be used at lower cell concentrations than the typically used "old" liquid yeast which is in the stationary phase. You can adjust the yeast dosage to your individual production cycle and not the other way round.

We are also delighted to safely store your proprietary brewing yeast strains in our HefeSafe®. Here your own yeats strain

The PIKA Approach

Conventional yeast banks are propagating their yeast and then let them settle until they are inactive. Then the yeast is shipped in its resting phase, which means it is "old" yeast. For you as a brewer, this means: You have to work and wait until these yeasts “wake up” and re-start into proliferation.

We at PIAK Weihenstephan have developed a better method and ship pure liquid yeast in the proliferation phase – for its protection with overnight express and cooled, of course. Your advantage: The yeast can be transferred direct into the wort and starts its proliferation immediately without any delay.

As a customer of PIKA Weihenstephan you always receive fresh and sterile pure yeast with a guaranteed viability of more than 95 %. Of course each batch of yeast we deliver is PCR tested and free of other microorganisms. Because for us quality always comes first.
