I noticed that Wyeast is listing BTB on it's website. Does this mean we are close to distribution?

Wyeast has always listed it. I have got my tanal A and B from them for years. You need to be a professional brewer though.

Gotcha. I noticed the sizes started at 1lb. That's a lot for a homebrewer who's using a few grams per batch. Hope to see it on the shelf soon.

The whole "need to be a professional brewer" thing is pissing me off, and with other products than Brewtan B.

I've got the money, just take it already. So long as I'm willing to buy whatever volume you're selling, what do you really care? White Labs has several strains that I'm interested in that are "Pro Only." Just doesn't seem a good business model.

I understand not wanting to sell at homebrew volumes, as is the case with real invert syrup. But seriously, if I wanted to buy a tanker load of invert, and had the cash, the fact that I'm a homebrewer shouldn't be a reason not to sell.


Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

Wyeast has always had it, but only in large commercial quantities.  That's not who's gonna carry it for the homebrew market.  With any luck, we should have an announcement at or shortly after HBC.

In either of these situations I would be surprised if the company declines to sell to homebrewers because they are homebrewers. Far more likely that the products/yeast are just not packaged for sale to the retail market (i.e. homebrew shops or direct retail) and only packaged for their wholesale market (i.e. breweries). If you bought a BBL pitch of that yeast or a pallet of BTB you would likely encounter no resistance.

Agreements have been signed and AFAIK it's down to packaging and labeling.

Not sure if things are cheaper to ship from the UK, but the Malt Miller stocks BTB.

I sent Great Fermentations a note and asked if they can get it and if so will they stock Brewtan B. They can get it and will stock it:

“Thank you for your e-mail! We had actually had requests to start carrying BrewTan B, so we did! It wasn't up on the web just yet, but I have worked and gotten it up on our website. It can be found at the following link:

http://shop.greatfermentations.com/product/brewtan-b-1-oz/beer-brewing-fining-water-chem

I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions and we will be happy to help you as best we can!

Cheers,

But the shipping,  yikes.  I've bought it on eBay for $7.99, free shipping.
