Default Pacman Yeast Starter Video

This is a Pacman yeast starter I harvested from a bottle of Rogues Brutal Bitter. I poured 3/4 of the bottle into a glass and drank it of course. I then made a starter of 16oz of water and 1/2 cup of DME and boiled. I then cooled the wort and sanitized the neck and mouth of the bottle and poured the rest of the Brutal Bitter into the starter and started spinning it. Super easy to do.

let us know if it is a success

When does this yeast usually go on sale and who carries it? i thought it was sold sometime in 2007.

IIRC Wyest is releasing this again shortly, I think I saw an ad in BYO this month.

Well, a few weeks back when someone posted that they thought it was already available, I went to my LHBS, and he did some calling to his distributor...He was told that the pacman WOULD NOT be sold individually that you could now only get it in the Brewcraft Dead Guy Clone kit....

So I really don't know...

Needless to say thanks to wedge's video I have a erlynmeyer flask spinning with some yeast from the bottle of Shakespear's Stout (which had a nice yeasty layer in the bottom of it, AND it was one of the bests stout's I've ever tasted.)

I'm going to boost it later with some more from another bottle...Should I boost it AND add another 2 cups of wort...Or boost what I got with more yeast then build up the volume tomorrow?

I now have the starter up to 1000ml and the yeast if flocculating great. I probably have close to 2 starters worth of yeast in this batch. And yes from what I understand you can only get the yeast in the Dead Guy Clone kit. So i figured instead of spending $40 on the kit I would just $4 on the beer and clone it. I just ordered a 2000ml flask so im gonna try to increase it in that and then harvest the yeast off into freezable containers as shown in Yuris vids.

I cultured some of this from a bottle of Shakespeare Stout - man does that yeast grow up quick! I used it in my DFH 60 min clone, it went from 1.060 to 1.008. I used a 1.040 starter wort and it worked great.

Default Wokka Wokka Wokka!!!

Well I was a little worried about mine, it didn't appear to take off for 48 hours (The temp in my apartment took a nosedive to the low 50's at night the first 2 nights.) Yesterday morning I shut the windows as I was leaving for work and the place got back up into the 60's.

Last night I shut down the stirplate to let it flocculate out, and this morning I was rewarded with a nice quarter inch layer of yeasties at the bottom of my flask.

This was from the sludge from 2 bottles of Shakespeare stout, & 2 cups of water boiled with 1/2 cup DME....

I have 2 more bombers of stout, so the question is/are;

Should just feed the existing yeasties more wort (another 2 cups?)

Should I feed with more wort AND add MORE Yeast Sludge from the other bottles?

Should I just add more yeast sludge and not feed it more wort? (This one doesn't make sense to me.)

Or should I make a second harvest with the other 2 bottles of Stout?
