Default Post here if you scored East Coast Yeast today

I sent my email at 4 pm EST sharp, and now I'm refreshing my inbox like crazy to see if I was one of the lucky few.

I know Joe at Princeton Homebrew isn't sending out emails to those who missed the boat today, and I respect that...but it would be nice to hear from someone who scored, so I can move on with my life.

My friend got some. He called me excited and I said, "What's that?"

I'm doing some reading- it's a big deal.

Oh well, then. They say that East Coast Yeast is going to start upping production soon, so hopefully I'll get some before I'm old and gray.

If everyone could buy it, it wouldn't be so popular.

Didn't notice the 3:52 email until 4:01... so I missed out again.

I scored a vial of ECY01, I probably should have gotten 2 vials bc with shipping it's gonna cost me $20 but I really needed it for an upcoming barrel project.

I pretty much have given up trying to get some ECY. Every time they offer it, it is gone almost as soon as it is offered. Unless they up production to make it more widely available, I give up,

It seems like you need some secret decoder ring to get the stuff.

I think what you really need is a fast ping to the Princeton homebrew email account (so living in NJ/NYC/Philly helps) plus you have to be the type of person who checks their email all the time, plus luck.

Well guess what, brewers, I just got an email from Joe with news that I DID score some ECY after all! (Seems he missed sending my confirmation email.) As soon as I get my vial of Bugfarm, I'll be brewing my first-ever sour ale.

This is just a message to give you guys hope--if I can get ECY all the way out here in Washington State, hopefully you'll get some soon, too!
