There is a new brewery in our area, Ozark Beer Company, that uses their yeast exclusively. The head brewer is very keen on this brand and they make the best beer, by far, in our area.

I've also never heard of Giga. Looks like most of their yeast is cultured out of bottles/cans of commercial beers.
I was somewhat interested until I came to the part where they introduce their dog. Maybe it's just me, but I'd rather get my yeast from somewhere that pets aren't involved. The seem to say that the dog is confined to the office, but anyway...
Two things I am suspicious about in a man. 1) If he doesn't drink coffee. 2) If he doesn't like dogs. I might forgive one of those. But I cross a man out of my books if he doesn't like either. Just sayin'.
My starter could have used a blow off tube! Took off in 3 hours. I'm pretty sure it's their version of WLP001 and I'm going to use it in a IIPA this Sunday. I made a 2L starter and split it up into 2 jars and will keep one jar for a future brew but will step up the other jar for the brew this weekend. I figure if I'm paying this much, I want to keep some around for a few more batches.At this early stage, I'm happy with it so far. The true test will be when I drink the beer.
