I am often shocked by the casual racism I have witnessed here. People say crap that they don't even think is inappropriate. I have heard my neighbors call the Asian international students "chingies" and the Sikh and Hindu "habeebs" and "a-rabs"

Every generation is getting better. My grandparents were awful.

This is not a problem that is only in the south.  After 9-11 many types of racism came out because people thought it was ok to Hate everyone when a small fraction of a certain populace decided to commit an act of terror.  In my mind Racism because of hate is deplorable.

I recon we should move away from this topic, seeing as it is in the bylaws of the forum to not talk about race, religion or politics. I realize I have been a contributor but if we could steer away from the topic now I'd appreciate it.

I was hoping you'd see this. It's cool that the local guy is going to try a local guy.

Yes, I would like to do some test batches with some of their lager strains. But having heard of s3ome of the bad yeast many small breweries were getting from BSI, it makes me nervous to jump ship from the tried and true.

Also, no one from the company has bothered to contact me yet.

BSI has been around for some time right?

How would a new outfit go about gathering guinea pigs? Even if they offer a free pitch, the amount of money invested in the other ingredients is steep.

Like any other process, I could see how it would take time to work out the kinks with a new propagation system.

4 or 5 years? I know for a fact that they had some bad yeast batches. A couple local breweries near me had to stop using them because of off flavors and misshapen cells due to pushing yeast production to keep up with demand.

That said, I remember when White Labs was the new kid on the block.

I'd say more like 10 years at least.

I looked at the BSI web page, and it says they were founded in 1996.
