I sent lallmand and whitelabs an email regarding Diamond Yeast.
One of the Yeast gurus from whitelabs is on the brewing network at 5pm pacific time and will be answering questions taken over there chat serivce. I'll try and ask him then.
Whitelabs is supposed to be distributing Diamond for lallemand.
Yeah, slight sourmash. Thinking I should have used some noble hops instead of columbas/goldings for that. But I didn't have any around.
Now I try and keep a 100 grams of Saaz in the freezer in case it's needed. Nothing worse than getting all ready top brew and realising the ubrew's (only places to get hops here) are all closed early on saturdays!
Actually Tree Brewing
will sellyou some hops buut there mon-friday and I just found that out. I heard the brewmaster will give you free yeast as long as you happen to purchase some beer at the same time.
