I am looking at the White Labs WLP076 (Old Sonoma Ale), and see that it is available May-June. My LHBS, which also happens to be a natl. mail order shop, does not have it available. I see some online shops that have it, but I am leery of its freshness. Are the Platinum Strains yeasts one-time special releases, or do they come out each year?
Sorry for such a rookie question, but I have not bought liquid yeast before, the web page for that yeast at White Labs is not working, and their web site is not really clear on this point.
