I've use it numerous times now and you can direct pitch it too which saves the hassle of making a starter.Can't recommend it enough.
Quote from: nigel_c on April 02, 2019, 09:09:46 pmIf you have a problem with an order or product you really should take it up with the supplier you got it from rather then post on a forum. They may not be very active and not see this post for a good while.
Quote from: Water_Wolf on April 02, 2019, 03:36:50 pmIn fairness to HBC, they can only work with supply and demand and a limited number of deliveries from White Labs a year. They usually let us know on the forum when a new White Labs delivery is being ordered. They can't do much more than that!The vial is still perfectly usable, there'll just be a longer lag time if you pitch it direct. To be honest, I nearly always make a starter no matter what yeast I'm using as I want to know it's alive before I pitch it.The new Wicklow Hop Company yeasts they are selling are going to be kept fresher by the sounds of things. I had one sitting in my fridge for two months before pitching it straight last weekend and it took off within 12 hours.
