PSA - New Yeast Company
« on: November 18, 2014, 12:28:05 AM »
I hope this is OK to post here. Mods, if not then please remove.
I am not affiliated with this company at all but like what they are doing. Check them out. A complete pitch in one bottle, not need for a starter and 200 billion plus cells per bottle. Propagated fresh per order. A little more expensive but not really when you consider the time, effort and additional ingredients needed to do a starter.

I like the idea of something resembling an actual pitchable quantity (for standard OGs anyway) liquid culture. I would try it if it were something I could find at my LHBS, probably wouldn't have it shipped though. I've gotten sub optimal yeast (due no doubt to shipping temps and conditions) from online vendors enough times to stop buying it online. I can get fresh liquid cultures from my LHBS anytime.

I like that they carry a few "native" yeast strains. The orchard Brett sounds like it would be nice to try in a cider.

I guess my thoughts here are that it had to be shipped to my LHBS so what's the difference of shipping directly to me.

What is the cost? Didn't see anything on their website or vendor sites.

You can request a quote from their website. I believe it's around $13 for one bottle but may be different from strain to strain. I'm not sure. I'm just glad to see additional fresh made options out there.

So , if it's 200 billion cells for $13... how is this different than buying two packs of Wyeast?
Please do not reply if your[sic] an evil alien!

Not necessarily different, just another option.
