Hydra - Thin Looking Slurry

Why does my Hydra or Cerberus slurry look thin? 

Hydra (and its parent Cerberus) forms unusually thin-looking yeast slurries, especially when compared to "fluffy" yeast strains like Foggy London Ale.

There is a large difference between low flocculation yeasts with small cells (Hydra, Cerberus) and flocculent, chain-forming yeasts with bigger cells (Foggy London Ale as an example). Different yeast strain slurries will take up more volume than others depending on flocculation, cell size, and chain-forming.

Rest assured we always provide accurate cell counts for all of our yeast orders, and believe in providing you with the correct pitch rate for optimal fermentation.
