When did that change? (3726 year round).  I emailed last year and they told me they weren't gonna run it anymore at all.  I understood it to be some sort of agreement with the Imperial start up?

It's the word I got late last year.

It didn't change to my knowledge - I emailed them about the same thing a while back. As far as I knew, the only year round source (maybe only source period) for 3726 is what's reported to be Imperial Rustic. Awfully close to 3726 to me.  :)


Edit - I take it back. Wyeast's site does show 3726 now as a year round. Ok, another source then. Things must've changed since I emailed them (Drew and Denny's input?). Cool!

Keep in mind that the guys who started Imperial used to work for Wyeast.

So I take it, 3864 will not be released this year.

My own fault for not harvesting some from my starter. First time I didn't do that in who knows how long, and it had to be a PC. Maybe I'll find someone that keeps it, probably a long shot. Thanks

I remember reading that here, Denny. I was just confused because I emailed Wyeast maybe 6 months ago-ish and was told that 3726 wouldn't be back @ Wyeast even as a PC. Oh well, I'm not complaining !

It was more of an explanation of why Wyeast and Imperial seem to have the same strains.

Oh yeah. As for that, makes total sense. I misunderstood.

Denny, do you have any idea when 2105-PC (rocky mountain lager) might be released next? Or when it was last released?

That's one thing I miss from their old site - the ability to look at year's past PC release trends to kind of guesstimate when it might come back around :(

We ;picked some lager yeasts, but as far as I can recall that wasn't one of them.  I'll check and get back to you tomorrow.

Thanks a lot man. I look forward to seeing what other releases you guys picked for the year as they roll out.

I remember discussing the strains getting axed at Wyeast but I didn't think 3726 was on that list. Too many breweries are switching over to it as their go-to saison strain (well at least some lab providing the Blaugies yeast). Maybe they said they wouldn't have more homebrew production because commercial pitches had consumed all of their stock at the time.

To OP's point I don't have anything to add from Wyeast's availability but people who like the Unibroue strain tend to love it deeply and you could probably find somebody who has some slurry they could share. If not here, maybe on one of the facebook homebrewing groups or HBT.

My own fault for not harvesting some from my starter. First time I didn't do that in who knows how long, and it had to be a PC. Maybe I'll find someone that keeps it, probably a long shot. Thanks

Where are you at in Indy?  I think I have a slurry in my fridge, along with a slurry harvested from La Fin Du Monde.  I haven't found the two to be any different, but YMMV.

Sounds like an excuse to buy a sixer of Unibroue.
