Default What's up with Nottingham dry yeast new price?

Now it's like $4. Wasn't this yeast under $2 a few months ago? Any ideas on why?

Depends on the supplier. Here it's $1.50 .

I think that some LHBS choose to sell some supplies at low mark ups to encourage you buy other stuff at regular profit levels. Others say I want my mark up on everything. In addition it depends on how many levels are between them and the mfg.

It is not the markup. Nottingam has gone up in price drastically in the past couple of months. If you are still seeing 1.50 a pack, I bet it is older inventory.

I guess it is time to start washing Nottingham as well.

Can you trash the US$ without expecting rampant inflation?

Is Notty yeast a bellwether for the evil monster inflation?

Same with us05 I believe . Used to be 1.75, now its 4.50....I don't understand that. Unless they have something to gain by pushing dry yeast users into the liquid yeast market. Are danstar and fermentis owned by other yeast companies?

Maybe they're tying to fund new dry yeast strains?

$4 for dry yeast is ridiculous. For me, they've just out priced themselves from my House Ale as I brew 3 five gallon batches at a time and I used to pitch a packet per bucket.

Now, instead of $12, I will build up one $7 vial of White Labs 005 and split it across 15 gallons and still have some left over for a second 15 gallon batch.

I'm done buying dry Nottingham. I'll update my Haus Pale Ale recipe after I give WLP005 a try.

Ed, why not just rehydrate and build up the Notty dry yeast?
