What is a Yeast Brink Used for?

Yeast brinks are used in brewing and fermentation processes to collect, store, and manage yeast cultures. They serve several important purposes in the brewing industry:

  • Yeast Collection: Yeast brinks are used to collect yeast slurry from a fermentation vessel once the fermentation process is complete. This collected yeast can then be reused in subsequent brews, reducing the need to purchase new yeast for each batch.
  • Yeast Storage: Yeast brinks provide a controlled environment for storing yeast for extended periods. Yeast can be kept in optimal conditions, preserving its viability and ensuring it remains healthy and active until it's needed for another batch of beer or other fermented products.
  • Yeast Maintenance: Yeast cultures can deteriorate over time due to various factors, such as contamination or changes in yeast health. Yeast brinks allow brewers to monitor, feed, and maintain yeast cultures, ensuring they are in the best possible condition for fermentation.
  • Priming Mixer: Some yeast brinks are equipped with features that facilitate mixing yeast with priming sugars or other additives before they are introduced to the final fermentation vessel. This ensures even distribution of yeast and additives when mixing in the yeast brink.

Inspired by the historic Carlsberg Flask, originally devised in 1883 by Emil Christian Hansen for cultivating the first pure yeast culture, the FermFlask Yeast Brink is purpose-built for aseptic yeast management in the brewery, ensuring the purest and healthiest pitching yeast.

Save your brewery money with the yeast brink by reducing the need to constantly buy new yeast for every batch of beer brewed.
