Pacman is the house strain that Rogue uses in its ales. It is a very clean fermenting and highly attenuating yeast. I have done several batches with it and have had nothing but success. I wish it would become a strain that Wyeast would keep in the catalog all year around.

I am down to three packs in the fridge. I like the yeast so much, that I don’t want to part with any.

ok so I was just doing some searching and reading on the fourm and I came along this thread:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=3498
and I was wondering if It was posible to use the yeast from say a Rogue Dead Guy brew and make a starter out of that???

My problem is i am not sure if Rogue brews have a yeast layer in the bottem!
(closes Rogue Dist. is an hour away)
any Ideals?

Call around to some HBSs and see if they still have any in stock.

score....buddy of mine brewed an IIPA this past weekend, stopped into work (a lab) before leaving for my vacation and had a YPD plate with a yeast lawn on it, plate labelled "Rogue Pacman, 3/4/07, Tom"...thanks tom, will be making some glycerol stocks when I get back to work on monday.

If anyone else is looking for this strain, I would be happy to ship you a small culture of it in return for a White Labs vial that you have used, assuming there is a small amount of un-contaminated yeast in it, and it isn't a strain I have in my library yet.

You need to know how to culture yeast of course...

I have two bottles of saved yeast in my fridge. If anyone wants some I could easily do another starter and send some. I don't know how well it would survive the trip, but I'm sure several days is not a problem.
