They have been skyrocketing. It is making the liquid yeast look like a bargain.

I thought I was losing it!!!! I finally learned the proper use of dry yeast and now they jacked the price up, some of them are still reasonable.
Have you heard anything about why they are going up??

And now Danstar/Lallemand has followed Fermentis and they've jacked their prices up too. I know it's not you're fault, but dang!

Have you heard anything about why this happened? White Labs and Wyeast must be thrilled.

So far, Muntons and Coopers have stayed fairly low. Wonder when they'll follow?

I'll bet you a Bud Lite one of the reasons in the price jump is demand.

I started using US-05 and S-23 a while ago because I liked the end result (good beer), not to mention the price (didn't it used to be around $1.50?) and convenience.

I think Fermentis saw an opportunity and adjusted their pricing.

Yes I agree with that. I guess they have to pay for the equipment etc... to increase production to meet the demand.
