That's super amazing

I can already tell that all the 20 strains are viable and fermenting. Although five of the strains are really slow growers (EBY005, EBY008, EBY009, EBY011, EBY013 all Cantillon strains and EBY016 B. lembeek I). Everything is right on schedule which means, the strains will be sent off on Monday, the 26th of August. But before that, 350 tubes have to be labeled, filled and sealed for shipping.

I have to be honest, it took way more time and effort to prepare this experiment than I expected. But that's how it is. I hope no problems occur during shipping, propagation and the experiment itself.

Please let me know if someone has any success with blends later on. I am already playing around with some blends but would be really interested to know about other's success.

I wouldn't object to you charging over the shipping costs to cover tube and dme costs.

It looks like I may have access to a university lab, and my friend - a micro-biologist to help build these up, and also store them. I've never spent any time in a lab, so I'm pretty excited about that.

I also have 20 1-gallon jugs ready to go.

I concur. I would be happy to do so as well.

Thanks for all the hard work, I can't imagine how labor intensive putting this together was.

Eureka, after a 8 hour marathon of filling and sealing 350 tubes of yeasts, the 38 envelopes are ready for their journey. I will deposit the envelopes at my local post office tomorrow morning (26th of August 2013). Expect to receive the yeasts within three to seven days (according to my post office). I am so relieved, all the preparation work is now over.

Further information about the experiment can be found here:


For all the collaborators, please read the first update if you haven't done so already.

Cheers, Sam

Sam,
Thank you for all of your hard work. Your efforts are worth much more than the $4 you are asking!

One question, do you suggest adding any yeast nutrient to our first starter?

You can certainly add some yeast nutrients if you like. I always add some nutrients to all my starters.

Please keep in mind that EBY005 B. cantillon I, EBY008 B. cantillon II, EBY009 B. cantillon III, EBY011 B. cantillon V, EBY013 B. cantillon VII and EBY016 B. lembeek I are really slow growers. Expect to wait longer to get any signs of fermentation.

Cheers, Sam
