Born in Melbourne, going live across the country
From a laneway less travelled
Our name’s derived from the bluestone bricks that line Melbourne’s laneways and the unique culture that exists there. Like the makers and doers who’ve helped build this vibrant cultural scene, Bluestone Yeast set out with a desire to innovate, hustle and ultimately create something better than the status quo. And to help Australia’s craft brewers do the same.
Starting out fresh
As no one in Australia was producing live liquid yeasts for the country’s craft brewing community, microbiologist and craft beer enthusiast Derek Lacey decided to do something about it. Enlisting the help of his brother Damien, an engineer specialising in process management, Bluestone Yeast was born. Since starting out in 2018, the company now distributes fresh yeast to probrewers across the country and now also offers 120ml live yeast pouches for savvy homebrewers.
Lab-fresh liquid yeast
Unlike offshore yeast providers we provide speedy delivery to ensure our yeast reaches your brewery in peak condition. We know our brewers want the best and freshest ingredients, and we’re committed to delivering them. Our yeast is packed fresh at our Melbourne lab so it can reliably deliver the flavour and results our brewers demand.
