The GigaYeast Gold pitch is the first homebrew yeast with a true 5 gallon / 19 litre pitch rate for consistent fermentations without the need for a starter (> 200 billion yeast). Each Gold Pitch is made with care in the GigaYeast laboratory using hand picked yeast varieties. Gold Pitch Shelf life: If stored properly before use, Gold pitch yeast remain greater than 90% viable for 30 days after the date printed on each unit, greater than 80% viable from 31 to 60 days and greater than 70% viable from 61-90 days. “Ok, so they’re alive. Do they still make beer?”. Results show that Gold Pitch yeast attained an average apparent attenuation of approximately 83% even after 90 days in storage. Yeast older than 60 days tended to start slower (results not shown). Yeast older than 90 days will still attenuate but we recommend using a starter to insure a successful brew.
