I'm planning on harvesting the yeast from my Dead Guy sometime, so if it isn't I guess I'm screwed.

So w/ a very thorough search I came up w/ an old stout here in town. I am gonna give it hell and see what happens.
The funny thing is, I don’t even know what or when I am gonna brew next.
Cheers
JJ

As someone who has harvested a lot of pacman....I can't confirm whether or not DG has it...On ALL their other 22's it lists the yeast on it...but on Dead guy, it doesn't say so on the silk screened label. I haven't risked it, and always have pitched it with the dregs of one confirmed Pacman bottled beer.

Well here it is. Tonight its 11:40 and I just put the Pacman on the stirplate I am going to step this up 6x over the next 7-8 days and then wash the yeast and create my starter for my Honey amarillo IIPA or my Big Motor stout, which ever one I do, I am going to split the batch into (2) 6 gallon fermenters and pitch this Pacman into 1 and WLP001 into the other and compair. I will let you all know how this test turns out.
Cheers
JJ

Update? I just drank a bomber of the stout and pitched the hefty yeast layer in a stater... hopefully I'll get some action soon... I also hope to see the yeast ferment!

As much as I have looked up on the subject, I have seen about a 50/50 result. As many people that say it is pacman, there are just as many that claim it is simply a separate bottling strain. Either way you would probably get some nice usable yeast.
