Damn, that does sound pretty interesting. It's crazy how many new yeasts there are now, I feel like I'll never be able to try them all!

Sounds very interesting... but $199 for 500 g.  :blink: which would only be about $4 per 10 g, but still...

Yeah, very expensive for dry yeast. The value is there tho for a commercial brewer if it performs as advertised. Not having to buy or maintain a lacto pitch would be just one thing. It’s not too far off of the price of the equivalent liquid yeast pitch.

They contacted me last summer to help find a club that would serve beer made with it at HBC.  We hooked them up with RBS and I got a chance to try several beers made with it.  I also talk to Brian Perkey of Lallemand about it on episode 102 of EB if you want more info.  Very interesting product.  The real intent is to make a beer with it that you blend with another beer.  Very effective, very nice sourness to it.  Probably won't hit the homebrew market for a while.  The real question is whether brewers and the public will accept a GMO yeast.

Not sure this is for you are not but do they have to put it on the beer that it has a GMO in it?  Would the public know if they do not advertise.

Probably most of the public, no.  Beer geeks would know.  The encouraging thing is that at HBC no one cared when they were told.

Cool.  I am trying to find a reason to care and I cannot.

Anybody end up trying some of this stuff? I got a hold of someone online who was willing to buy a brick and distribute, just checking if anyone has any impressions before I use it.

Ugh, The guy I was talking to said he got contacted by Lallemand and they said he could not separate and distribute the yeast. They also said that they plan to offer homebrew size packets later in the year. Bummer!

 

It sounds like the yeast would make a nice summer wheat for mowing the lawn!

Yeah, the head of NA marketing at Lallemand confirmed to me that it should be out by this summer.

I haven’t gotten it yet. I plan to, but I have to figure out the whole blending aspect. Sounds like this might be too sour on its own

Do they have any legs to stand on here? I’m surprised dude didn’t just stop talking about it publicly and still buy the brick and break it up.
