Default "New" Nottingham with a price increase?

I don't know if its been mentioned here yet, but I just read this over at ProBrewer, and thought that I would pass it on.
Apparently, Nottingham has been reformulated, and the price has been tripled. The pro brewers have figured out that it is now much cheaper for them to go clean out a homebrew shop of sachets than to purchase the 1/2 kilo bricks.
Anyway, here is the link, read the whole thread
Nottingham price increase

Have you seen the price of Safale-05 as well? Austin Homebrew is selling it for $3.39 while Nottingham is $1.59.

I have not seen Notty go up in price yet, but Safale basically doubled in price..

Yeah, I noticed that the Safale 05 is up, but I also haven't seen a price increase in nottingham. Im sure its coming though because the posts I refered to over on probrewer are from a lallemand rep.

Well, dry yeast users have had a decent excuse for a long time but it's getting harder to justify. Also, anyone who still thinks yeast propagation is a waste of time is going to think a bit harder now.

Yikes, guess I'll start propagating nottingham and 05. Starters for every batch.

I just built up a WLP029 for 15 gallons of my Kolsch with enough left over for saving two vials. The three Kolsch yeast cakes will be used for 15 gallons of my Oktoberfest Ale, so I should get a minimum of a dozen 5 gallon batches from one vial, thus making it about 58 cents per batch for yeast.

Time to start canning all grain wort for starters.

Yeah, I've started saving yeast too.

I didn't until now because I thought it was going to be a pain, but it really isn't.

And it's kind of fun "stickin' it to the man."

I could start saving yeast at that too. Liquid yeast is a significant fraction of malt cost for all but a big beer. Dry was lower, enough to make washing yeast not worth the trouble, but if it's shooting up I'll change my approach.

What R&D...yeast makes itself...what R&D...WTF??

I think we all should write to them and tell them what we think and that from now on we can't afford their prices and will propagate our own...I know I do.

I have about 1/2 gal of Notty in the fridge right now...by bartering we can supply the entire forum without much problem which equals no profit for them...
