While You’re at It… Stock Up On Wyeast

Wyeast has let vendors know that they are temporarily stopping production due to covid related issues. When I first read the announcement I interpreted it as they were going out of business. I was very happy when I read it more closely. This is a temporary stop in production.

We’re starting to see some strains sell out. Of the three that I originally highlighted, Pacman is now sold out across the board.  Beyond that, each retailer has a number of strains that are unavailable. As an example, I’m seeing well over 25 non-seasonal strains out of stock at AIH. Many popular strains are still in stock, but we are starting to see repercussions of Wyeast’s production stoppage.

Order now to stock up on your favorite Wyeast strains as availability may be an issue soon.
