Storage Info

The shelf life is 6 months and will be written on each tube, the ideal temperature is 4 degrees but simply put it just means keep it refrigerated and don’t allow it to freeze!

Our tubes are labeled as 800 billion cells but we pack considerably more to compensate for viability loss over the 6 months so the fresher the tube the better the fermentations will go!
