Sweet, I would definitely be up to trying this. I emailed morebeer (as I have gotten the W-34/70 from them before, they are the only people carrying it in small packs) to see if they'll be getting it.

I was thinking about a rye or wheat beer for my third in line "next brew" and this might push the wheat over the top.

I have a feeling it may be hard to stack it up to a traditional wheat yeast (like WLP300 WLP380 etc) but it might be really good for an American rendition...or perhaps just for something new.

At any rate I'd be game to try it.....IF the price is less than $2, otherwise it probably isn't worth it imo, save for having around.

We shall see! I am sure someone else will brew with it and have a bottle going before I get around to it.

Well, they aren't claiming it's a hefe, just wheat. [Not that I do either] Their dry lager yeast worked well.

Yeah that is true.

I also used the W-34/70 and must say it worked VERY well, I cannot detect any diacetyl and I did no rest.

This just in:

"We currently don't have any specific plans to carry that product, but I'm going to talk with the people in charge and see about starting to. Check back with me in a couple of weeks and hopefully I'll have good news.

Planning on a wheat beer here next, I hope I can get some of it to try. Always had good results with their other yeasts.

Anybody know where it can be purchased? Didn't see it at the major online places. And, does anyone have any experience using it yet?
