Hey guys, so the yeast bank didn't get enough interest to get started on site (BOOO!) but that's no reason to not collaborate anyways! I know at least a couple of you would probably be interested in doing this on the side.
If you're interested at all in exchanging some yeast cultures, various ale yeasts, lager yeasts, brett strains, cultures, lacto, mixed cultures, etc, etc. Let me know! Add your viable cultures to the google doc below, get in touch with someone who has something you'd like to get your hands on and be kind!
All of my cultures are propogated via appropriate starters as per the brewunited yeast calculator, based on the work of braukaiser, and stored in sterilized (UV irradiated) 50mL centrifuge test tubes. These are cheap, reusable, air and water tight, and a perfect size for me. They are NOT pitchable into 5 gallon batches, but work great for my smaller batch sizes. If you intend on doing this for a 5 gallon batch, you'll need to make propogate it up via a starter. If you don't have a way to make a starter, send me an email and I'll see if I can propogate before meeting up.
More on my harvesting method here : http://pricelessbrewing.github.io/methods/yeast-harvesting/
Yeast for yeast, or yeast for some
homebrew drinkable yeast samples would be a nice exchange in my eyes
PS: I'll be sharing this with the CHBG as well, and if I can actually get their freaking website to work, the guys at chihops in southside, so there's a lot of potential to get some nice variety established in the mix!
