Just got online to make my usual order to northern brewer and got to the yeast portion and nottingham has jumped to $4.50 each. I must have missed something what happened at danstar for the price to jump that much. I guess I will start washing and reusing it.

The new packaging is driving the cost increase. Don't know what's so special about it.

Uh, yeah, for that price I'll buy US05. I like it much better.

They just lost another customer because of this ****. Now I might as well buy Safbrew/Safale/Saflager yeast. It's cheaper and just as good (if not better).

FYI, all of the Danstar yeasts have basically doubled in price. It's not just Nottingham.

At these prices, I may as well make the switch to liquid yeast.

I feel like all of the Safale products have gone up as well. Am I wrong? Not as extreme as the Danstar stuff but, still.
