Long enough. I've had yeast for months. If you have any doubt about it, make a starter.

Looks like a great deal, except when you add shipping for 4 packs, the price averages $6.30 per SmackPack. I'll head up to Austin Home Brew and pay their $6.49 and get them when I need them.

It's a shame they don't have free shipping like Morebeer.com. I'd buy $60 worth of yeast for free shipping.

Will the Rogue brewery give/sell homebrewers who show up at the brewery(yes, for consumption of happiness in a keg:mug: ) some spent yeast? Does anyone know if they'll do that? Has anyone done just that before? I know someone who has showed up to a local brew pub and got a small bucket full, but Rogue?

Thanks for the heads up...I stocked up on some yeast, including a Rogue Pacman, even though I hate just about every rogue beer.
I'm surprised to hear that you're not a Rogue fan. I don't like their brews across the board as much as say, Stone (the best brewery out there, for my money), but overall I've thought they are pretty good. Had some Dead Guy on draft tonight, went down very well.

Also, I think this is the first time they released their yeast to the public. Not sure about that; someone else may know.

that's pretty cool for them to do that.. and it makes sense also.. thanks!

sorry, newbie question...

what's so good about rogue's PM yeast?

I am fairly certain the PacMan contributes very much to the clean finish of their products using it.

Pacman yeast gets it name from it's ability to gobble down just about anything. Attenuation can run 80% or better. It is also clean fermenting and temperature tolerant. As a liquid yeast, it's about as close to Nottingham as you can get.:D

You know, I have 3 packs of yeast from Northern Brewer in my cart and the estimated shipping weight is 2lbs?? I am missing something?

[edit]Do they really ship it with almost 2 lbs of ice packs?[/edit]

At the LHBS here in Salem, OR (Homebrew Heaven) ROGUE PACMAN is ALWAYS in stock. Has been for about a year or more now. 3 months ago I brewed my harvest ale with it. I was just down there yesterday and decided to try the WYeast short run yeast for my ESB instead of ROGUE PACMAN. It's still in stock. Anyone else get it when they want at their LHBS?

or if you are feeling adventurous (or cheap), you can just harvest from a 22oz bottle of Rogue....
