They've changed the URL from YeastCalc to YeastCalculator - but its thankfully still around.

http://www.yeastcalculator.com/

EDIT - I see Mort (and possibly others) had already identified the new site. Me happy.

They should set up a redirect from the old to the new, unless they had to change it because they didn't renew the registration on the old.

yay.  I'm not sure but I think that someone else actually recreated it from the wording at the bottom.  It sounds like they never got ahold of the guy... Thus a new domain was needed.  Either way I'm just happy it's back lol.

That's correct.  I was sad that yeastcalc.com went away and I tried to contact the owner/author of it, but was unsuccessful.  So, I registered yeastcalculator.com, pulled a copy from archive.org and put it up.  Glad that you guys found it and hope that you continue to find it useful!

The original owner has recreated it at a new address by the way.

www.yeastcalc.co

It's version 2.0

Yeah... I'm not a fan of 2.0... The layout is less compact and the tab order is unfriendly.  Just my 2 cents.  For awhile he still have the original version up on the new site... but I don't see it anymore....
