In stock now, generally regarded as a different yeast. Some say possibly Sam Smiths.
Had a Mild Ale win Best English Ale at last years Tanunda Show with 42points using this yeast.

But who is stocking them, been waiting for WLP022 for years.
Will have this next order, mid to late February.

Not sure who is stocking them up north, but I'm in the fortunate position of having two local HBS that stock White Labs. :)

Personally, I'm looking at the 510, 644, 585, 665, and 072. Having the 566 and 670 moving to all year availability makes me just a tad happy :D

As I have stated many times I have a commercial interest in mashematics, not that I really flog it..

Select Store and check out fresh and backorder to order Whitelabs either way.

from the aforementioned link WLP644 Brettanomyces bruxellensis Trois (MAY-JUNE release)
This Belgian strain, used traditionally for 100% Brettanomyces fermentations, produces a slightly tart beer with delicate characteristics of mango and pineapple.
sounds more like brett c than b. might have to give that one a go in an all brett beer and compare it to the all brett c beer i did a while back.
