WLP644 Sacc Brux Trois Anyone?

I'd like to give this yeast a try in an APA type beer soon but rather than paying £5 delivery just for a vial of yeast (I just had a big order and foolishly forgot to add this) I'd love to do a bottle swap if anyone has used this so I can culture the yeast from the bottle?

Afraid I can't help you, but a geezer on another forum created a genuine Conan x WLP644 hybrid that might do an even better job on an IPA.

If you can culture the stuff up, then maybe this could be an even better option.

Google Conan x WLP644

Good shout there (I think this is the thread here). It sounds interesting and he had a fresh batch available about 4 weeks ago so I sent an email to see if he had any left.

Well the guy replied this morning, unfortunately he's all out at he minute but he's planning another culture soon and I'm on the list, thanks for the pointer :thumb:

Well just to update this, I got an email from the bloke a few days ago saying he is ready to ship the next batch of this to those interested, €6 including shipping from Finland which isn't too bad but it's only a 2ml centrifuge tube so it requires some culturing to get a pitchable amount.

Looking forward to trying this in version 3 of my NEIPA.
