I know. And that's strange for a new player to come in "overpriced"!!!!

Not really. They claim to have twice as many cells as Whitelabs and many many times the number of cells for their bacteria.

That would eliminate the need for a starter and also make them great for big beers.

2017: 105L brewed (need to update this figure)
Drinking: Landlord clone
Conditioning: ciders from 2016, hedgerow barrolo, 1914 Courage RIS (10%).

For a brand that is not tried and tested, I won't be purchasing anything of that price without knowing it's the dogs.
Even if it is twice the cell count, if you're spending that much on yeast you'll be splitting it to use in another batch and keep it in storage etc.. so why would you need more cells when you're growing it anyway.
