Default Anyone haerd of these new Yeasts from Mangrove Jack's (New Zealand)

http://mangrovejacks.com/collections...-series-yeasts

My local homebrew shop just got a (unsolicited) sample of these.

Oh, and this cider yeast:

Which shop in Omaha?

I would be willing to give some a try.
I could split between a couple of 3 gal fermenters and ferment at different temps.

The LHBS where I work also got some unsolicited samples from this company yesterday. We each took a couple to try. I got the "workhorse" strain, which sounds like kind of a cry havoc thing, where you can do lager or ale temps. I also got the "Newcastle dark ale" strain. It says its for dark milds or English browns and has "full, rich, dark fruit favors". ( well, actually it says "flavours", being that they're from New Zealand and all). Both sound promising. It's nice to see more strains becoming available in dry form. I love when I make something where I just use a standard US-05 - it's nice to not have to do starters all the time, especially since my brew days have been increasingly spontaneous, I have been so busy I never know when I'll have time. My next brew day may not be until big brew day on the 4th of May, but whenever I use them I'll post results.

Yeah, just saw them but they also came without prices so the brew shop guy doesn't even know what the prices will be. He told me to take some to try but it was at an event so I just left them on the table for display purposes.

Cornhusker, I work there part time (Generally Saturdays), but won't be there this Saturday since our club is doing Big brew a week early. I think I might split my share of wort in two and try a couple of these yeasts.

We also got some of this at the shop I work at. Brewed a big 1.090 Tripel with the Belgian Ale yeast. The description said it has very high attenuation, a temp range that goes to 90F, and can go up to 14% ABV. I think it might be a Saison strain. It's currently sitting in our warm warehouse. We also did a quick cider with the cider yeast, and the sample at racking was pretty dry to my tastes, and it flocculated very well.

Interested in these as well, saw them on Rebel Brewer today. Guess I'll have to pick some up - particularly interesting in the Bohemian Lager strain. All are $3.99 per pack on the Rebel Brewer site.

I got a package of the Belgian Ale yeast to play with as well, so will be very interested to hear how that big Tripel comes out.

Also interested in the Cider yeast, as I make a lot of that every year; does it preserve any of the fruit character or aromas? Fast or slow fermenter? I've not been impressed with the results from other so-called cider yeasts, but always looking for new stuff to try.

Big tripel went from 1.090 to 1.001...11.8% ABV. Going to age it for another month or so before kegging it. Tastes really damn good.
