The PurePitch® Next Generation is an evolution of White Labs' PurePitch - the most superior and consistent yeast on the market - has been made better with new packaging powered by FlexCell® technology for ease of use and a pitch rate resulting in a foolproof fermentation every time. The new packaging features a modular pouch with a cap and a consistent cell concentration intended to pitch at 7.5 million cells/mL per 5 gallons. The new process has also increased the viability and improved the shelf life of the yeast now lasting 4-6 months. Meaning that now you get more yeast and a foolproof fermentation with out a starter since you are starting out with 2x the pitch rate than before.

White Labs California Ale Yeast (WLP001) was the first strain of yeast produced by White Labs back in 1995. It is the best selling yeast from White Labs, and is famous for its clean flavors and hardy fermentations. It will accentuate hop flavors and aromas and attenuates well, even for high gravity beers. It's particularly known for its use in hoppy beers.

It can be used in almost any style of ale ranging from IPAs to Porters and even Kolschs. It makes a fantastic all-around house strain.
