Yeast Banking Submission

Yeast Banking Information

We do yeast banking for a number of breweries all over Canada and the US!

Yeast strain in pure culture received and banked in -80ºC cryogenic long-term storage. Your yeast will be recorded in our database and available for propagation at Premium pricing provided sufficient lead time. We charge a one-time fee of $299 to bank and characterize your sample.

If you would like to proceed with banking your yeast, the next step is to send it to us. A sample of 50-100mL is typically perfect for our needs.
