I've got mouse urine all down the side of my hockey bag, perhaps you can come lick it off.  ;D  (Freakin' mouse took up residence in a box on a ledge above my bag...)
Is that a counter-pressure bottle filler in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

No thanks ;D

I used to have a mouse problem in my garage, I found a dead one in a jacket once (that promptly went in the trash).  I set out a lot of traps, caught 3 in one night once, and 12 inside of two weeks.  When we got a new furnace I found and plugged the whole where they were coming in, now we go months without them figuring out how to get in there.  i'm thinking I need to pull everything out this summer and seal all of the holes.  Little bastards.

Freakin bastards is right.  I've got at least one that is evading my traps and stealing the bait.  I have two of those ultrasonic doohickeys out there and that worked for a while (as evidenced by the traps staying baited and unsprung), but I just saw one the other day climbing my pegboard.  And now the bait has disappeared from my traps again.  Freaking bastards.

I ended up catching a shrew in one of the traps.  I couldn't figure out how it kept getting away wit hthe peanut butter, I figured it was a little mouse that was too light.  I was right, just not that it was a mouse.  :)

This strain sounds great. Except for the mouse urine.

It must have been introduced after the spring of 2009 since I never saw it on the White Labs order sheet when I last worked for a LHBS.

I'm pretty sure this is the first go 'round... right?  No one seems to have any experience with it anyway.

@whitelabs twitter post states "NEW STRAIN- WLP670 American Farmhouse yeast. Inspired by a local San Diego #brewery. Get the perfect amount of sournesss. Check your LHBS" and the White Lab page for WLP 670 states "...It consists of a traditional farmhouse yeast strain and Brettanomyces."

Question: Do you have to have separate fermentation equipment for Brett fermentation or is that for bacterial strains?

If you ferment in stainless or glass, you don't need separate stuff for anything including bacteria.  If you're using plastic, it is prudent to have dedicated stuff.

Plastic scratches too easily.  I wouldn't trust it, but I haven't tested it either.

Thanks.  I got plenty of tubing to dedicate and SS racking canes.

Has anyone heard any feedback about this yeast yet?  I would think someone has at least gotten enough info to tell us some fermentation time.
