Bright to introduce new beer yeasts at BrauBeviale

10 November 2015  •  Author(s): Victoria White

Renaissance Yeast Inc., a leader in selectively bred wine and cider yeast technology, has introduced a new Renaissance company, Bright Brewer’s Yeast Inc., to commercialise its new line of selectively bred premium beer yeast.


Bright uses very precise, non-GMO methods to clean up the genetics of well-known traditional beer yeasts to improve their performance capabilities. In addition, all of Bright’s beer yeast strains prevent the formation of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) during fermentation. Benefits to large and small craft brewers include quality improvements and cost reductions involved in not having to remediate bad batches.

Bright has very advanced non-GMO yeast improvement technology and are leading global experts in yeast development. They can clean up beer yeasts very quickly and they have plans to update a number of beer yeasts to add to their current list of four yeasts. Bright has said it is excited to unveil a selection of its all-new beer yeast strains and to discuss potential collaborations with brewers at the BrauBeviale trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany, from November 10–12, 2015.Commercial availability of the beer yeasts will be late spring/early summer 2016.

Bright to introduce four improved versions of beer yeasts at BrauBreviale

At BrauBreviale, Renaissance/Bright will introduce the first four of their improved versions of well-known beer yeasts and do a taste test of their French Saison beer (taste this beer directly against Saison made with traditional Saison beer yeast) and also have an Amber lager to taste. They have kegs of these two beers to pour for tasters. The other two yeasts are strong lager (bock) and an American wheat ale.

“We believe our new strains and ability to selectively breed beer yeast is a major breakthrough for the brewing industry. We’re looking forward to introducing Bright’s line of selectively bred premium beer yeast at the Brau,” said Dr. John Husnik, CEO of Renaissance Yeast Inc.

BrauBeviale is one of the largest international beer and beverage production trade shows in the world, featuring 1200 exhibitors from 27 countries and 37,000 attendees, with more than 40 percent of visitors coming from outside Germany. The Bright team will be available throughout BrauBeviale in Hall 1, I-229 to meet brewers, answer questions, and discuss potential collaborative partnerships.
