Wyeast puts it out once a year or so in their private reserve. I would substitute US-05 as a close-enough until you can actually get some. There are quite a few threads on the subject about culturing from dregs.

I got some from Brewmaster's Warehouse a couple of months ago, and harvested two jars from it. Check with them- they may still have some.

Do a google search...there are quite a few places who carry it (not sure how old the packs are). I'd like to have it more readily available, too, but I guess it is not always around unfortunately.

THere is some debate as to whether or not Deadguy is filtered or not and whether there is actually enough yeast in there to harvest. I have had great luck with bombers of shakespear stout, hazelnut stout, and any of the bombers where it actually says pacman yeast on the bottle.

I can't confirm or deny whether one bottle of DG will work, since I usually use multiple bottles when I try to harvest (I leave an inch of beer in the bomber then carefully recapp the bottle with a sanitized cap and store in the fridge until I have a couple three bottles, then add them all at once.)

Since I've never JUST used all DG, I can't tell.

If you look at the similar threads box below, you can see some of the back and forth on whether or not anyone's been successful with JUST dead Guy.

And this is a really great thread on harvesting Pacman....Many of us have done it rather than buy pacman, It was harder to come by only two summers ago, so a bunch of us captured our own....it's fun, and satisfying to do it ourselves.

We do have some in stock and they are pretty fresh. Pacman is a normally stocked yeast for us, and I am sure other places as well. We get more in anytime we need some.

Dead Guy is filtered, but as mentioned above Shakespeare Stout isn't. I've always had good luck culturing it form that. Or just getting some from the brewery!

Thanks for the call. I attempted to call back but I must have taken your number down incorrectly.

Sorry,

Ed
