Hi dj1984. Thanks for the offer but I do not homebrew so will not have anything to trade. I am getting a friend to do a brew for me and it needs Pac-man so I thought someone could help direct me to a supply. many thanks. when we are about to brew will give you a hoy and talk about it if that is Ok.

That's the thing ... the Pacman yeast being a Wyeast PC (Private Collection)
means it's unlikely any retailers will have it for sale (have read that Wyeast is
unlikely to ever release it again as they need permission from the owner of the
strain - Rogue Brewery).

So it means the only way to get it is from brewers who have it in their yeast
collection - and it will probably take a few weeks to get a slant of it from a
kind donor, step it up and make a starter from it.

Otherwise, you'll have to use something else - BribieG thought White Lab's
WLP090 resembled the Pacman - see this.
