Impressive indeed
Best thing to happen to homebrew since packaged test. Well done NB. I like when a local company does good.

Great product!
This is really a great product. For years I "canned" wort and it was always a lengthy project. I really like how convenient it is to make a starter with these. I am glad this product is available and feel like every new brewer should get this to brew better beer.

I'm a believer
Three times now we've created the starter the night before we brew and let it sit till morning. After pitching in to the wort the airlock has gone crazy within two hours. Never had things take up that fast.

It takes two long to make a starter. I love its time saving. I wish shipping was cheaper.

Time saver on brew day
I've gotten great fermentations when using this product and great tasting beer. I've used the fast pitch in several IPA batches and one chocolate milk stout batch. Prior to using fast pitch I was hydrating dry yeast by adding to cooled water that had been boiled, so by skipping this step I've got fewer steps to follow on brew day.

Wow
I have used liquid yeasts in the past and decided to use the dry with a Drunken Farmer recipe. This batch was like a volcano and required a blow off tube for 3-4 days. It sounded like a motor boat in my closet.

Why is it that you have to add water at all? I thought the cans were 16 oz? The reviewer that stated "adding water you had to boil, cool..." seems spot on. What's the point of the cans if you can just "use as is?"

Is the description/instruction inaccurate? Or is the OG of the cans that much higher than you want a starter to be therefore you need to dilute?
Peter O on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Fast Pitch is meant to make a one liter start at the appropriate OG when mixed at the rate one can plus one can of water.
Can this be used with liquid yeast or is it for dry yeast?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is designed for use with liquid yeast. Re-hydrating dry yeast with this product would be overkill at least and unproductive at worst. However, for liquid yeast starters it provides a quick solution if you are not inclined to make your own and suffer through the boiling and cooling of the starter wert...works fine and saves a few minutes.
Can I use this to prime my bottles after fermentation?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is wort in a can. It is used instead of mixing DME and water for yeast starters. To prime, you would want to be looking at some sort of sugar, either corn sugar, honey, or the like. If you are looking for ease of use, I would recommend a conditioning tablet - Midwest carries Fermenter's Favorites Fizz Drops.
Hope this helps, and good luck!
What is the Gravity of the Fast Pitch wort
R Y on Jan 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe it is 1.040. I will never make my own starter again. It is the most simplest thing you cando. I sell time for a living and I use no time making a starter from the fast pitch can!
Why are some cans of Fast Pitch cloudy with small chunks in them while others are clear?
B R on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Cloudiness or small particles in a can of Fast Pitch is the result of packaging the wort. Once the wort is boiled, proteins will coagulate and precipitate out of solution to the bottom of the kettle. Although every effort is made to remove this trub from the batch before canning, some does remain. Some cans of Fast Pitch will contain some amount of trub making the starter wort appear cloudy with some particulate in it. This should not be a concern, as coagulated proteins actually act as a nutrient to help yeast health during the propagation stage.
