Default New Nottingham

Anyone buying Nottingham anymore? The new packaging is lovely but I wonder if tripling the price makes it worth buying anymore....?

I somehow got some in the new package but at the old price. Where I got it has since raised the price.

I got some for $2.50, roughly double what I used to pay. I'll just harvest a bit to get back to the old price!

I haven't seen the new packaging yet. I was at my lhbs and they still had the old package at $1.49.

I noticed the up in price too. It's sad because I was justifying not washing yeast anymore since Notty was so cheap. Now back to more work for me!

What about just making a starter and harvesting out of that? It would be easier than washing yeast. I plan to do this now that I have a stir plate.

I used to harvest and freeze all my yeasts until I started using Notty, now I just do for specialty yeasts I plan on using again (Belgians and such). Either way, harvesting is more of a pain than not.

Yeah. My point was to take notty and activate it and make a starter. Harvest half and put in the fridge. Thereby stretching your dollar.

I am a total noob and I have what may be a stupid question. In stead of any
harvesting whatsoever, exactly what prevents one from taking one of the bottles
from a batch and simply pouring it into a starter wort and going forward? Isn't
a bottled batch effectively a yeast farm? All you need to do in that case is keep
track of the strain used each particular batch? Is my thinking sound?
