does anyone know where i can find pacman yeast? im in canada and am having a hard time finding it. i would like to buy some online if possibe, or even try to harvest some, but not sure from which beers..
Not sure if Rebel Brewer ships to Canada but it is available there, just picked some up this weekend.
To harvest look for bomber bottles from Rogue brewery.
It's Wyeast 1764, if that helps. And almost every rogue ale uses pacman.
AHS had it last I checked (wyeast 1764)http://www.austinhomebrew.com/product_info.php?products_id=10839
I was looking into getting it from dead guy ale, but was reading that they use a different yeast for bottling, does anyone know anything about that?
Dead Guy is fine. It's all pacman.
I harvested mine from a bottle of Single Malt Alehttp://www.rogue.com/beers/single-malt-ale.php
I harvested fro their yellow snow IPA. I've heard people have had problems with getting pacman directly from dead guy ale. The other one people recommend is their Shakespeare stout. Good luck!
I am in the middle of doing some from Dead Guy Ale. I started off with 10 grams of DME in 100ml of wort. Let it go for 2 days. I used the dregs from a single bomber.
Tonight I did 50g in 500ml. Decanted the 100ml, pitched in the 500ml wort and put it on the stir plate.
Will update the thread this weekend. Possibly with pix if I can find the camera.
