Brewing high gravity beer is a long standing European tradition, and Wyeast is making it possible for you to create and brew your own. Whether you are looking to brew an extremely rich malty brew with a powerful bouquet or a winter warmer with malty sweetness and complexity, our High Gravity Private Collection™ will provide you with the most critical tool to make it possible.

These brews will take a little more preparation, demand more effort and require more patience but the benefits are amazing!  So, settle in this winter season with your favorite brewing resources and prepare yourself for a truly Big Brew experience. We hope you find our Private Collection truly rewarding!

This collection of special blends has been developed at Wyeast by our dedicated brewing wizards. Please give them a warm toast as your senses explode!
