Typically we require a 14 day lead time as we would be growing these up fresh. Orders placed in advance of our required lead time are greatly appreciated. If you need yeast more quickly it does not hurt to inquire as we can sometimes shorten that lead time with our more popular strains.

RVA 600 is our lone bacterial offering. It is a pure culture of Lactobacillus rhamnosus which has been shown in clinical studies to have many beneficial effects when ingested. These are homofermentative (only produces lactic acid, no carbon dioxide or ethanol) and are hop-sensitive. They respond well to kettle souring applications and decrease pH quickly in temperatures from 90 to 110 degrees F producing a pleasant perceived sourness that is clean and bright. RVA 600 works well as a component in barrel and bulk aging applications as well.
