Al's East Coast Yeast
« on: September 18, 2017, 02:39:39 PM »
I see it is only available on one website, but many of the strains/blends are unavailable. Does he release things like the bugfarm and some of the more obscure brett strains staggered throughout the year, or does he have a particular time of year for these releases?

It's super boutique and limited production.  Use the notification option to keep track of the strains you want. I think Love2Brew also mentions new availability in their emails.

I'd check the MTF facebook page. Seems to be easier to score than the bootleg biology cultures.

Milk the Funk. Great source for info on the boutique/independent  labs.

According to his contact page, his homebrew pitches are essentially overrun commercial pitches. I don't think it was always this way. BugFarm pops up frequently.
