Conan is the name of the yeast used by 7 Barrel Brewery in NH. They had connections to
Noonan of Burlington as did the owner/brewer of the Alchemist.

I believe 7 Barrel is where Kimmich first started brewing commercially. I think he even talks about getting his yeast from Greg Noonan. There's an article he wrote about it.

No reasonable person would hope for this for free of course
I have been doing this for a while now, got a new batch just of the stirplate and more on the way. Ill pm you details, but this is a note for anyone else looking for Conan, ill have more in stock soon, so PM me for details.

Latest batch of Conan is in the vials and shipping out tomorrow to all the prospective cloners. Check your PMs. I should have 4-5 extra vials if anyone else wants in, PM me before the end of the day Monday. Everything will ship out tomorrow USPS so it's at your houses before the weekend.

In a few weeks, I'm going to send out some vials too... What's your source for those vials? Seeing as how you write a homebrew bargain blog, you probably have a good place.. Thank!
