Yep, I didn't say I was going to stop buying them for sure. I have them around for backup actually. I tried to use some washed WLP830 last weekend and it would not start and was too old. I decided to go with some notty that I had around and it is fermenting close to lager temps anyways at 56* so maybe I will get some lager character out of this Octoberfast anyways
