White Labs Yeast Vault - Order Here!

Post by GillettBreweryCnslt » Wed Dec 16, 2015 9:37 am

Hey Everyone.

White labs is opening the yeast bank vault for the first time in a while and are releasing 23 strains that have been locked away for up to 20 years. White labs will only release a strain once there are 250 pre-orders for it, but it's open to all vendors worldwide. I have to pre-order strains and I will not be bringing in any extra of these ones so if you are interested please let me know in this thread. I'll keep a list of participants below and provide updates.

The cost of the yeast will be $14-17 depending on the strain (the retail cost of the yeast in CAD essentially) and payment will be due if and when that strain hits 250 pre-orders. The yeast will also be in the new "PurePitch" packaging which means the best before date will be 6 months after manufacture not 3 months like the vials. So even if you're not brewing immediately it'll last you a while. Here is the link, and take the time to read the descriptions, some of these strains just sound really cool.

I'd take some Hansen Ale as well
Nova Prime Taproom
Tap 1: Festa Brew Scotch Ale
Tap 2:
"Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain -
Quaintest thoughts - queerist fancies
Come to life and fade away;
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today." ~ Poe

I'll take one of each of the following:
WLP925 High Pressure Lager Yeast
WLP673 Lactobacillus buchneri
WLP030 Thames Ale Yeast

and hell if you have it when these come in I'll probably wind up with one of those stir plates with the temperature probe and hotplate built in and a 5 litre flask...
