As much as I love you guys, it would be hard for me to trust ANYONE else's sanitation when it comes to adding yeast to my beer. If it were something really interesting or hard to come by (anyone got some clean Pacman left?), maybe; otherwise, I'd rather drop the couple bucks for fresh.

If it makes you feel any better, I use the finest urine available - straight from Miles' diaper. Pure virgin urine.

Simple enough to evaluate, though. If you pitch a starter you'll certainly be able to tell if there were any bacteria in there or not.

But, I see your concern.

I have a frozen yeast bank, I'm pretty sure I have some pacman in there. The only yeast I need is Wyeast's VSS Bier de Garde - it is supposedly Fantome's primary strain. I emailed Wyeast and they said they will re-release it at some point and will try to let me know when.

edit> They just emailed me back: (I asked if it was the Fantome strain)

"This could be a possible origin of 3725. If it comes out in 2008, it will probably be in the 3rd or 4th quarter. If you would like to experiemnt with another saison strain, 3711 is a current VSS strain."
