It's Wyeast 1764, if that helps. And almost every rogue ale uses pacman.

I was looking into getting it from dead guy ale, but was reading that they use a different yeast for bottling, does anyone know anything about that?

I harvested fro their yellow snow IPA. I've heard people have had problems with getting pacman directly from dead guy ale. The other one people recommend is their Shakespeare stout. Good luck!

I am in the middle of doing some from Dead Guy Ale. I started off with 10 grams of DME in 100ml of wort. Let it go for 2 days. I used the dregs from a single bomber.

Tonight I did 50g in 500ml. Decanted the 100ml, pitched in the 500ml wort and put it on the stir plate.

Will update the thread this weekend. Possibly with pix if I can find the camera.
