Liquid Yeast vs Dried Yeast
Yeast for beer brewing can be found in both liquid and dried form - both have some advantages and disadvantages.
From a home brewing perspective, the convenience, cost and reliability of dried yeast make it hard to pass up. With more work being done to increase the range of dried Yeasts available, it’s become arguably the best option for those who aren’t making large batch sizes and don’t brew regularly enough for liquid yeast to be viable.
At Mangrove Jack's we certainly appreciate being able to grab a dried yeast packet out of the fridge or random drawer in the garage (that's been taken over by brewing gear) for a cheeky mid-week brew.
