Used them a few times going to using joystick or barbarian tomorrow. Prefer the new packaging over the old cans.

Might be worth a go. I prefer to buy my yeast in bulk too.

Have I got this right? This is about 15 brews?

Ended up using the juice strain, manufactured in January. No starter and rocking in 24 hrs. Got to love that 200 billion cell count.

Absolutely, 1.060 sg really needed about 230 billion yeast cells.

These are liquid yeasts - designed to be single pitch without the need for starters for viability or vitality. They contain twice the number of cells of Wyeast and White Labs.

For lagers you probably still need more cells - and therefore multiple packs or a starter though...

Could you post a picture of the final beer in the glass when ready? and also share the recipe if you may :beer:
I have one A38 yeast bag in the fridge and I cannot decide for a Neipa recipe :)
