Their full service laboratory provides product and microbial analysis, proprietary yeast banking, lab media, lab supplies as well as easy to use quality control test kits and brewing accessories. The company’s mission is to provide the highest quality product at a fair price with unparalleled service. White Labs’ corporate office is located in San Diego with the sales staff operating out of Colorado.

LD Carlson President Ron Hartman added, "Quality products are what drive our industry. We are excited to be associated with a company that exemplifies the principles we have based our business upon."

The LD Carlson Company is currently entering its 33rd year of operation as the major wholesale distributor of winemaking and beer making equipment and supplies. Expanding from a single retail location, which began in 1970 as Wines Incorporated, they are proud of their modern facility, which allows them to offer prompt and efficient service. They are dedicated to providing the industry with the best possible customer service and competitive prices.

"Through this distribution agreement, we are now able to offer our customers the best liquid yeast on the market," said Rob Kight, LD Carlson’s Director of Operations.

Homebrew retailers were able to order from either company beginning Oct. 1 2002.
