A quick check shows it available in Australia and New Zealand and at least one HB forum post says it will be in North America by year end.  Like when Brewtan B first came out, it was available through Australian sources before it hit the U.S. homebrew market for some reason (less red tape, maybe?)

Thanks! Can't wait to hear more about this yeast. I have been waiting for a "true" kolsch dry yeast strain. I wonder if this will fit the bill.

It will be interesting to see if it makes an acceptable Kölsch.

That would be awesome.

I would also like to compare it to US-05 and Bry-97 for APA’s and Ambers.

I don’t think I’ve read another yeast description with this statement:  “Expression of a B-glucosidase enzyme gives this ale striain the ability to promote hop biotransformation...”.

Sounds interesting. Not sure what it means though.

Sounds interesting. Not sure what it means though.

“Simply put, biotransformation is said to occur as a result of the interaction of hop oils and active yeast, leading to a transformation of certain terpenoids into terpenoids that weren’t originally present. A fascinating concept that many have posited may be responsible for the qualitative differences between New England and other styles of IPA.”

Basically when you hop in the fermenter (during active fermentation or after fermentation is complete) changes the results.

Hey thanks for sharing that. I probably never would have read the description lol. Now I'll have to play around with it.
