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!

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.

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.

Group or Homebrew Club Buy Tip


Midwest Supplies’ current free shipping sale with mill purchase provides an interesting opportunity to stock up or purchase some heavier items that are typically expensive to ship.  Now may be a good time to order a club or group purchase to take advantage of this free shipping loophole of sorts.

An example.  The pictured 6.5 gallon glass carboy is selling for $39.99.  That’s a great deal.  Shipping, for me, is $18.35, or nearly 46% of the cost of the item itself.  Shipping brings it up to $58.34.  If you purchase a Captain Crush Grain Mill – First Looks Post – that shipping price goes away.  Use the grain mill as a club mill, share it, or maybe you want one of these puppies for yourself.  Other heavy items include recipe kits and bottles.  With just a few exceptions, most notably bulk grain, nearly everything qualifies.
