Default pacman ale yeast

So- as many of you must know- Wyeast will put out these specialty lines of yeast from outstanding microbrew co's. I see that a while ago, they were selling Rogue's Pacman Ale Yeast. I wish I was brewing back then! Does anyone know if they intend to re-release this type? I can't find data that specific on thier web site.

Not sure. Right now they're advertising the Fat Tire yeast.

Email them. They always answer my questions pretty well, sometimes it takes a few days but they have always responded to me.

I have cultured pacman yeast from a couple bottles of Rogue beer. If you are comfortable making starters, it's not very hard.

Whats the deal with this yeast anyways. What makes it so spectacular? Or is it just that it is from a well known microbrewery, and people want to use it just for that reason.

It's a very aggressive yeast strain that makes a great beer! It ferments quickly, cleanly, and flocculates well. Plus, getting that signature Rogue flavor in your beer is impossible without the use of PacMan.

Which brews are bottle conditioned?

Most of them, if not all, as far as I know.

I used shakespeare stout and brutal bitter, if I recall correctly. It's fairly easy to tell by looking for sediment in the bottles.

To answer the original question, I think Wyeast brings Pacman yeast around for a little while every year, don't they? So, if you missed it this time around, you may just need to wait a year.
