The importance of yeast management in a brewery cannot be overstated. Chris Boulton and David Quain rightly put it when they said, “If I was a yeast cell I would want to be looked after, cherished even!”. Understanding how many live yeast cells are working for you is one of the most important facets of yeast management. Better yeast management can directly lead to more consistent fermentations and beer quality, reduced fermentation times, reduced production of off-flavours, financial benefits etc.
