Sweet. I've been planning to try my hand at some Belgian styles, as it's a gap in my experience atm.  :rock:

I'd honestly wait until warmer weather to buy liquid yeast guys...with a 3-5 day shipping time, and the sub zero temperatures of February, you're pretty much garanteed to have frozen yeast when it arrives.

I did, I made a 1 litre starter and it seems to be fine.  I called the White Lab and the gal that I spoke with seemed to think that the yeast would be okay as long as I made a starter to bring up the cell count.  I am going to check the SG today to see where it is.  If it isn't dropping much, I'll re-pitch more yeast.

Yeah I'm seeing conflicting information about the vials on the web. The OBK guy is right in saying their official line is that a short freeze won't do anything bad beyond 10%; however we're talking 3-5 days and they make no qualification as to what "short" means.

Regardless, if it gets a starter going within 24hours, you're likely good to rock and roll.

Yeah, the Lab Tech from White Labs that I spoke with said that I should be fine.  Although, she didn't say whether I was supposed to step the starter or what size to make.

Aye they must be using gelatin or something equivalent in their vials - the same isn't true for any kind of raw slurry.

Well 5.99 from 6.25 was it? I assume 5.99 is temporary? Im going to hold off and spend the extra dollar and order in spring maybe.

Turning up the heat! Thank you for the comments and the feedback last week. OBK is now officially the only Canadian company that buys direct from Bayou Classic. This means we get to offer you the same warranty they get in the US on Bayou classic products we sell. After examining emails and comments we are getting just two products in at first. Wholesale inquiries welcome.

The KAB6 will be available for pre-order for 124.99 with FREE SHIPPING on the site in a few days. When the parts arrive the free shipping dies.

For those that like really like to watch things burn we are getting the the BG14.

Light them if got them.
Cheers,
Patrick.

Just as an FYI, those kettles are always on sale for $109. Still a great price for a great kettle.
