cln_ecy

East Coast Yeast specializes in artisanal yeast blends and pure yeast strains of long forgotten and difficult to find yeasts.

Availability of ECY is sketchy at best.  It’s my understanding they are a small operation.  When pitches become available they generally sell out quickly.

love2brew is one of a very few homebrew shops that stock ECY at all.  They just announced the availability of a small batch of ECY including Flemish, Saison Blends, BugCounty, Kellerbier and Dirty Dozen.
