See, I'm not always a jerk.

Were there any funky/sour vials up? I just ordered the Belgian Abbaye.

Bug County briefly. I think it's once a month they get ECY, always on Saturday since I've been looking. Time varies and the funk flies!

How'd the ECY03 I sent you work out? I saw on FB that should be available again in the spring.

Just moved, so I was holding off on the long aging beers until I got settled. Doing a split 10 gallon batch between ECY03 and WLP670 American Farmhouse is next on my list. With the ECY09 I was thinking low gravity Belgian Pale Ale.

The other day they sent out an email that they'd have vials of ECY01 at 3pm (Princeton homebrew that is). I was pumped as I've been wanting to get a solera started and ideally wanted some Bugfarm for it. I emailed at 3:00:00 and was told I was 17th in line so missed it.

Jesus christ really? If only my broadband was faster/I lived closer I would have scored a vial. It's a total crapshoot, sending an email at the exact correct second and crossing your fingers. Apparently a few dozen people sent an email at exactly 3pm down to the second. That's insanity.

Not to glote but I believe I got the last jar of of bugfarm last week. When I got joe's email I almost fell out of my chair, I've been trying for well over a year... more like 2 year. Just keep trying from what I've heard, it's worth it.

Al told me via Facebook:
ECY is a part time gig so it has been difficult to supply all requests. However, I have suspended brewery orders so that I can send more units to the stores for homebrewer's. Hope that helps. AL

With any luck it should get better for home brewers.

That is good news but if I have a hunch that the real reason for focussing on home brewers right now is that the NHC is about an hour from where Al lives. My guess is he wants to hit NHC hard with alot of vials...I have nothing to back up my claims, just speculating.
