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

Availability on this has been touch and go.  The last two times I’ve posted on GigaYeast’s Double Pitch IPA Strain it has gone out of stock in relative short order.  It’s available again as of this posting.  Put together a $59 order and it ships for free.

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.

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!

Love2Brew carries many East Coast Yeast Strains, with 4 being currently in stock and ready to order…

Old Newark Ale ECY10 – Sourced from a now defunct east coast brewery, this pure strain was identified as their ale pitching yeast. Good for all styles of American and English ales. Top fermenting, high flocculation with a solid sedimentation. Suggested fermentation temp: 60-68°F. Apparent Attenuation: 68-72% Resurrected from a freeze-dried deposit library, this pure strain of S. cerevisae is NOT the rumored Chico strain.

Kellerbier ECY28 – This yeast exhibits a clean, crisp lager in traditional northern German character. Use in German Pilsners including Kellerbier.

Burton Union ECY17 – Produces a bold, citrusy character which accentuates mineral and hop flavors. Well-suited for classic British pale ales and ESB.

Belgian White ECY11 – Isolated from the Hainaut region in Belgium this pure yeast will produce flavors reminiscent of witbiers. Suggested fermentation temp: 68-74 F. Attenuation: unknown at this time.

This search sorts by availability.  Available strains will show up first.
