I wish they would carry Bry-97. They carry nearly all other Lallemand yeasts.

PS. I emailed them to ask about it.
Yeah I've pretty much switched over to Lallemand. I personally can use 97 and 05 interchangeably however I understand that may others prefer 97

I got a response from RiteBrew. He said he will add Bry-97 to see if it sells. He said it didn’t sell well before. He said it will be in stock in 2-3 weeks.

Excellent. I did order some lager yeast from then. My ale brewing season will be coming up towards summer.

A while back I tried the Cellar Science English yeast strain and I recall a slow start.

Well, I pitched yesterday about 9:30-10:00 and here it is nearly 24 hrs later and I got nothing. The temp did increase by a degree or two but that’s it. I usually see a coorespnding gravity drop soon after a slight temp increase when using other yeasts.

I have a pet peeve with slow starting yeast. I am about done with Cellar Science and plan to stick with Lalleman or Fermentis.

Edit:  I gave up on the Cellar Science English strain after 27+ hrs. I pitched a PurePitch Pack of WLP001 which is remarkable in that the old axiom is to keep dry yeast on hand in case of emergency. This time, I used liquid yeast due to dry yeast failure which is a first ever for me.

I used their Cali in two single hop batches I made.  I have one in the fermenter now.  It has been in there about 12 hours and very little activity, but I seem to remember that it was closer to 24 hours before it started really going. I use it, S05 and Bry97 as they seem to work the best.  Next up I am going to try something in the Pils or Lager style and see what happens.

I've been using Silafine for the past couple of months.  It works pretty well.

I've been using it for over a year (bought the 32-ounce size) and am quite pleased with it.
