"Begin thread jack"

Revvy,
You said that you get the Dead Guy at a Ruby Tuesdays on 26 mile. I have never had Dead Guy Ale before, and I would love to give it a try. Since I live on 24 mile (and Hayes) I was thinking about giving it a shot. I am thinking it must be out more towards the Gratiot (sp?) way since I haven't been that way in a number of years. Is the one you are talking about out this way?

Revvy- if you ever start your slant hobby- you let me know!
I may use some of my "economic stimulus" extra money to buy a pack of slants and a burner this week...So I may have some slants to send you next week, I'll pm you for your address if I do...If you were closer to my neck of the state I'd just give you a jar of sludge....

What I've been doing if I have a rogue, even if I'm not ready to harvest, is to leave a couple of inches of beer in the bottom, then flame or give the mouth of the bottle a blast of sanitizer and re-cap, then I stick it in the fridge until I'm ready to grow usually- 2-3 days....This last batch I ended up with 4bombers with yeasties when I was ready...

Unfortunately, 2 weeks ago when I went in they were out and told me that they were not planning to carry it again...grrrrr...

The Ruby's is on Gratiot and 23 mile road....

I'm trying to think of a beer store up your way that would carry it....If you come up Port Huron way you can get bottles of it at a couple beer stores here...

It's the only Wyeast they sell, every other liquid yeast is White Labs. I guess there's advantages to living so close to Hood River, OR where Wyeast is based out of.

I'm starting to wonder if maybe we should start setting up some kind of a yeast swap. Or maybe a beer/yeast swap, where we can trade seasonal yeasts for other hard to find yeasts, or trade beer.

I found out the deal over the weekend....The much wanted Pacman is ONLY available through HBS's and Online through authorized Brewcraft distrubitors. So that means that if your store, (like the lhbs that I frequent) or favorite online retailer doesn't carry other Brewcraft products, then we are SOL....

I'm glad my harvesting is successful....I have an amber ale fermenting right now that I used some of my pacman in. I have to say WOW....I aerated with my O2 setup and washed my sample with distilled water and pitched, and I had major airlock activity within a couple of hours!

Hopefully it will turn out great....I'm already planning to brew another batch of Yooper's Dead Guy Clone with the yeast in a couple weeks.

I like your idea of a yeast swap...I'm trying ot lay my hands on some small test tubes to make up some slants (I promised Yooper I'd send her some.)

Evil, what the heck is your new AV, it looks like someone smashing a brown growler of beer into their face!?!

I can't imagine they would be two year old packs in the backyard of wyeast. Do they get any other special strains the rest of us are not?

I did a dead guy inspired ale that I have been enjoying quite a bit lately...though with 2565 Kolsch.

Now that's a zombie. Over three years in the dirt.
Glad to hear about your beer though!
