I did end up breaking down and buying a smack pack. I now have essentially 3 separate cultures that I'll probably plate and slant for long term storage (and to create my master strain). Thanks for pointing me in the direction to someone who carried them.

Once I get my plates and slants set up, I'd be willing to trade. I will also have some of Bell's ale yeast in plates and slants. This should hopefully not take too long; just long enough to read the directions about my pressure canner, so I don't blow anything up while I sterilize the equipment.

If you're interested, PM me and we can try to work something out.

I still haven't even made my plates/slants yet. Between studying for a professional exam for work, looking for a house to buy, and planning a wedding, I just haven't had the time. I haven't even brewed in about a month....

When I do finally get around to doing this, I'll send you a message. I just don't know when it will be. Sorry...

I have on hand in slants Wyeast 2308, Saflager S-23, Safale S-33, White Labs Cry Havoc, Wyeast 1056, and an unknown strain from a German Hefeweizen Tap (produces excellent wheat beers).

I can promise that these are pure strains and the yeasts are very happy in their slants! Any Takers?!
It is hard to get Pacman from Dead Guy. It is well known that dead guy uses pacman but if you have noticed the label does not mention this. Rogue beers that specifically say "Pacman Yeast" on the box are the easiest ones to work with. I made a quick starter and poured the dregs of a Rogue Yellow Snow IPA in there and it took off as fast as most smack packs.

Tried...Failed

I poured the bottom ~1oz of 2 bottles into a 50ml starter and stepped to 500ml. Grew mold in 4 days.

Woodbury419 did you manage to get hold of any of the pacman yeast?
I`ve tried to cultivate from Rogue bottles from Beers Of Europe nr Kings Lynn, but no luck.
If you have got some, any chance of a pitch?, willing to pay.
I occasionally work on RAF Lakenheath so pick up would be easy
Thanks
Dave

Sorry for the delayed response. You I wasn't able to harvest any live cultures. I ended up taking 24 5ml samples in search of viable pacman yeast. I didn't come across any viable cultures.
