I just picked up their American Ale II strain. I'm currently cooking up a starter to use in an American Amber. I will share my results when all is said and done. I'm pretty pumped about it, tons of super fresh yeast! The bottle says 130ml, I think that is total volume, over half of which is slurry. That is quite a bit of yeast!

Always good for the big guys to have some competition. What's their strategy? They need a website, pronto!

Subscribed. Keep the updates coming - a regional yeast source would be great.

He sent me a six pack of the American Ale II. Super fresh! Showed up on the 23rd and says it was packaged on the 21st. Going to brew NB's SMaSH kit tomorrow. I'll post results

I have a question. New company's selling yeast, do they use already issued yeast or do they develop new strains? Do they find a cache of yeast that are out of rotation and 'resurrect' them, like East Coast Yeast did with ballentines? I guess the bottom line is...Are they offering new/different styles of yeasts?

The yeast I got was described as performing very similarly to the Chico strain but with higher flocculation. I'm not sure where it came from, maybe it is the Chico strain with the most flocculant portion reserved over several generations or maybe it is from somewhere else. They do have a facebook page up but that was all I could find on them. My first starter was a volcano! I will brew with it tomorrow.

They need something other than a facebook page, I don't have an account nor will I sing up for one so I cannot get a hold of them. I would pass this along to them for those of us who don't want to have social media logs of their lives

I'll pass along the word, however, I talked to Barry a few weeks ago and he said that a website is in the works. They're only selling locally right now, but if I were them, I'd want to have a few more strains and make sure they all perform the way they should before I dump money into a website.

Wyatt is a biochemist, I'm sure the way all things have been going and how long this has taken to get this going, that he has developed this American Ale II strain himself.

I kegged my first batch with this yeast last night. The attenuation was solid, malt really came through and I could taste the hops shining through as well. Very clean fermentation profile. It's still early to give a full report as it was just a hydrometer sample but things look good. I was also able to harvest .5L of thick slurry.

I've been crazy busy at work and haven't had a chance to brew with this yeast until last night. Made my pumpkin porter, and it seems to be bubbling along just fine (pitched it about 9 hours ago).

The starter I made blew the top off of my flask! Never had that happen before. Making another starter today and going to finally get around to making NB's SMaSH kit
