Default Pacman Yeast

I have been in St. Louis for the last week. I bought a bottle of Rogue Brutal Bitter. It is the 22oz bottle. They had that and a 6 pack of Dead Guy. Is the Pacman yeast in this bottle? It is hard to tell on the bottom. I plan to pour it out into a glass to drink and then let the yeast warm up to room temp and then pitch into a starter to let it grow.

I haven't had much luck with deadguy, the bombers that is, haven't tried from the sixers...in fact I don't think it says anything on the label about having it...

On the Other hand I have had GREAT luck with Shakespeare Stout! I've got 3 successful harvest from bombers of it....

Here's a thread on it....

They did not have any shakespear stout. I plan to look at a shop here locally to see if they can get it. I want to use the yeast with my IPA.

Thanks!

I think someone on the thread got it from brutal bitter....

On the bombers it says right on the label.

Well, what I would do is dump the sludge from all the deadguys and the brutal bitters and see....it doesn't take a lot to get it going, and you just have to keep building up the starter incrementally.

It did not say that it was bottle conditioned but it said pacman yeast and all natural. They guy at the shop thought he saw some yeast on the bottom. I will test and see. If there is not, then I will have to find the stout.

I had a Lunar Ale from Boulevard. It is bottle conditioned. I should have brought back a bottle or two. If I am successful with the pacman, I plan to get a good bottle conditioned belgian to do the same thing for a dubbel if possible.

careful when propagating yeast from bottle conditioned ales

most of the time brewers use a different yeast to bottle condition

Most of the time? Eh, doubtful. Sometimes, sure. Pacman is definitely the yeast in the Rogue bottle conditioned beers.

This has been covered ad nauseum....Rogue indeed uses pacman both to brew and bottle condition their beers, it's confirmed right on their website..As well as just about every homebrewing forum on the internets (there's at least 5 threads here on the topic that I know of.)

Hoosierbrewer if it says on the label, then go for it...the shakespeare, and hazelnut stouts say the same thing, and I've been successful!

I have an amber ale going with it right now, and damn that started fast after I pitched it.

I'm going to make slants with some of the pacman I've harvested and build up a bank, and I'm going to use another batch this weekend as well.

Thanks everyone. I have one bottle. I wish I had purchased the deadguy ale 6 pack. I plan to try and grow it. We will see how it goes.

Why not just go buy a WYeast smack pack of it? I know I can get it at my LHBS. Just started re-carrying it. I know it was a VSS at one point but there's an agreement somewhere and now it comes in WYeast smack packs, AGAIN! I physically held one in my hands a few days ago. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT!!! It had it's own place in the cooler. I'll ask my LHBS the inns and outs of it next time I swing by. Might be a week and a half though. Gotta wait till payday or SWMBO will do unspeakable things. But if you are culturing it for fun please don't let me discourage you from doing so. It sounds like fun!
