Chocolate Malt specialty grains, 2 oz. Crystal, 1 oz. Hallertau pellet hops, yeast, priming sugar and a grain bag.

Yeast cells are active and living organisms. A slight expansion in Wyeast packaging is normal and does not indicate poor yeast health. Certain strains, including 1056 and 1338, are more prone to expansion than others. Please visit the Wyeast FAQ for more details.
