Default Wyeast and Rogue dispute over Pacman?

I use Wyeast 1764 Rogue's Pacman strain as a house yeast for many of my clean beers. This weekend, I asked the lhbs owner if he knew when it might be "re-released" again. He claimed that there is a serious dispute between Wyeast and Rogue about either financial aspects of their yeast banking or the terms of their Private Collection release relationship and that it could be a long, long time before it comes out again. I can't find any info online to support this, does anyone know anything else?

I think MoreBeer offers a substantially similar, if not exact same, yeast strain called San Diego Super Yeast.

MoreBeer says 1764 is currently out of stock but on backorder and will arrive around 02/11/13. I was looking to buy some yesterday, and this was the only place I found it still available. Guess we'll see next week what the real status is.

Is culturing it up from their Shakespeare Stout no longer an option?

Default Not Quite The Same...

SDSY, while a nice yeast, is definitely not the same as Pac Man which is in a class by itself. I don't know where this notion that the two yeast are the same/similar came about but if you have used each one you will know that this is simply not the case.

Sure. Personally, I have a few generations of 1764 banked, but you can always build up from Rogue bottles.

Agree.


Just to clarify the post, I'm not currently looking for PacMan, or substitutions, I was mostly just curious if these rumblings have any merit?

I will ask the local LHBS guy who has stocked Wyeast since its inception, and who always has PacMan available on a regular basis at his store (via third party distribution with Wyeast) if he has heard anything about a Rogue/Wyeast fight. If anyone would know, this guy would. I too am very interested in this because this is my go-to yeast...

I haven't heard any such rumblings, but if they should turn serious and we don't get pacman again, it can always be harvested from a number of Rogue bottle-conditioned ales.

It sure is nice/easier to pitch a smack pack into a flask on the stir plate rather than having to grow the yeast up from bottle dregs...

Or, you can grow the yeast from your OWN bottle dregs
