Sounded great till the last paragraph speaking of 500g commercially sized pitches. Can't tell if it is saying that is the only size available or not. I would like to try it on homebrew scale though

Sounds like it might be 1968/wlp 002? If so, it's about time.

[/quoteyes, those are said to be the Fuller's yeast, and the first post had a quote from John Keeling,the head Brewer at Fuller's. Pretty good bet that this is the dry equivalent.

I just saw this at my local hardware/homebrew shop. I'll be giving this a try tomorrow. If this tastes like 1968/002, then I will definitely be keeping a stash in my fridge to replace my S-04 supply.

Just waiting for it to come in - on order from my LHBS - they didn't know about it until I told them.

OP says ESB Premium.  Is this https://www.williamsbrewing.com/LALLEMAND-LONDON-ESB-P4182.aspx what we're talking about?  Or is there a "Premium" product that's not listed?  Danstar/Lallemand doesn't use numbers so I dunno.

What's your local? The only place I see it even listed (Williams) won't have any until at least October 5.

Chepachet hardware is the closest I have to a LHBS. They have yeast, hops and premilled grain all stored at room temperature. I stopped in for some cider yeast and saw a pack of this. Lucky score, apparently.
