1″ x 5/16″ Stir Bar… $3.61 Shipped

SEOH Magnetic Stir Bar Octahedral 1 x 5/16 new

1″ by 5/16″ Stir Bar by SEOH.  Encapsulated in FDA approved PTFE with Alnico V Magnet Core.

Use with your stir plate and erlenmeyer flask to make yeast starters.  Yeast count dramatically increases in a stir plate starter vs a non-stir plate starter.  The constant motion incorporates air, keeps yeast in contact with nutrients and expels CO2 for solution.  This all leads to higher yeast counts.

5/21/15 8:42 AM Central: These are selling for just $3.61 with free shipping.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

GigaYeast Double Pitch Vermont IPA Yeast – Conan Strain – Back in Stock

Availability on GigaYeast’s Double Pitch IPA Strain has been touch and go.  It’s available again as of this posting.  Put together a $59 order and it ships for free.

Idea: Brew MoreBeer’s Brewmaster Series Pliny the Elder Recipe (See: Brewing Pliny) and use GigaYeast Double Pitch Vermont IPA Yeast as your yeast.  This is something I would like to try.

GigaYeast's Vermont IPA Strain

From the product description: “The Vermont IPA strain from Giga has a strong, growing following if you search the web. The problem is the supply has not been able to keep up with demand. MoreBeer! worked with Giga to get all they could produce and was able to offer this product via mail order for the first time.”

Some Heady Topper clone recipes suggest this yeast.  Although the official description doesn’t say this… many believe that this is the Conan strain of yeast.

This is a double pitch (200 Billion cells) pouch.  Read more about that and this strain on the product page.

That promo applies to 1 Barrel Pitches of ECY

East Coast Yeast’s Mission is: “To provide new, fresh, liquid cultures for your special brewing projects. Specializing in artisanal yeast blends and pure yeast strains long forgotten.”

East Coast Yeast can be tricky to find in stock.

Love2Brew has teamed up with ECY to provide customized 1 Barrel Pitches of most/many/all of their strains (including the very difficult to get BugFarm).

from Love2Brew:  One Barrel (BBL) pitches are designed for large scale brewing with Homebrew Club projects in mind. We’ve teamed up with East Coast Yeast to offer you this exclusive program allowing you to order a 1 BBL pitch size of your choice! With 20 offerings including all your favorite sour blends these yeast blends are made fresh for your project. Once your order is placed ECY will begin production and as soon as it is complete love2brew will ship them out to you and your club!

For added value we have designed a space above to enter the Starting Gravity of your large batch. With this information ECY can tailor the yeast cell count to optimum levels for your brew so a yeast starter will not be required! The 1 BBL yeast pitches (Ales, Bretts, and mixed) will have cell counts for a minimum of the recommended 1 million cells/ml wort/degree Plato. This is the only yeast offering available anywhere with that level of customization and service!
