Our motto is to Empower Your Creative Vision. Origin is a unique style of yeast used to create a neutral alcoholic base that acts as the Origin upon which you layer other flavors. Perfect for Hard Seltzers, Canned Cocktails, and whatever else you can dream up. Also great for neutral washes designed for distillation and tough to ferment honey-based mead fermentations.
Works on both sugar, honey, and malt-based fermentations. The secret sauce is a very neutral, high alcohol tolerant yeast combined with nutrients and pH buffers. The non-urea-based nutrients help the yeast in simple sugar mediums naturally low in nutrients. pH buffers ensure a high enough pH to allow the yeast to run to completion in even the toughest of situations. The yeast strain used in Origin is a very low producer of H2S and fruity esters resulting in a clean final product. Origin stays clean at higher fermentation temperatures up to 80°F.
Origin could technically be called a Turbo Yeast being packed with nutrients. However, we don't like that association as many turbo Yeasts are not selected and assembled for quality and flavor but rather price and speed. Turbo Yeasts also do not include pH buffers.
Origin will work with all commonly used sugars, including sucrose, dextrose, and liquid invert sugar. When fermenting wort from malted barley, use our Brutzyme Glucoamylase Enzyme to break down α-1,4 and α-1,6 glycosidic linkages of starch, dextrins, and oligosaccharides for a drier, more fully attenuated final product. Pilot batches should always be performed to find the optimum final product for your further vision.
Add 10 to 20 g per gal (2.5 to 5 g per liter) directly into your fermentation with no hydration required. Ferment between 65 to 80°F (18-27°C). We recommend starting with a dosage of 15 g per gal (4 g per liter) and adjusting as desired in future batches.
