    Hey guys

    I recently heard about this: https://bluestoneyeast.com.au/

    Appears to be Melbourne grown liquid yeast. Never heard of it before. Anyone got any insights?
    You can't buy them off the website and a quick search doesn't return much of anything.
    Seems interesting.

    There's contact info on their web page - probably worth dropping them a line & asking how to purchase.

    They're not selling yet.
    Doing production testing at the moment & all the QC that goes along with that.
    Hopefully in a few months we'll have more options for fresh yeast.

    "Thanks for reaching out to us. We are currently concentrating on pro brewers, but we are ramping up production so we can supply the home brew market also. Will keep you updated."

    So just to be clear because alot of people like to know who owns what , your totally independent from the big overseas yeast suppliers ?

    Nothing on their website, nor anything in any of the available articles about them online state that they have any ties to overseas yeast manufacturers

    have had a quick chat to the guys and seems interesting for sure. Commercial only but they are in operation, can't wait to see what they can do at the homebrew scale. On a commercial level the only option so far has been to order pitchable quantities from the USA and pay huge shipping charges to get it over quickly enough, from melbourne the shipping becomes a lot less.
    Hopefully enough strains to keep people happy, and keen to see if they get some unique or rare stuff.
