BeerGenomics, a biotechnology company (a part of the TechnoSpark Group of Companies, which operates within the investment network of the RUSNANO Group’s Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs) has their yeast certified for compliance with the quality and safety standards and received the declaration of conformity on September 10, 2020.
BeerGenomics liquid yeast concentrate is one of the main beer components, defining its taste. The living liquid yeast is used for brewing high-quality craft beer.
In order to maintain a consistent beverage quality, yeast strains should not mutate through the lots. It is also important to maintain the number of vital cells, the yeast culture purity and cell glycogen reserves. In our yeast laboratory, apart from the beer wort, we also use a variety of major mineral elements and minor constituents to cultivate and adequately nourish the yeast. Ensuring a stable quality, this also allows getting the required amount of raw material in a short time.
