Default Wild yeast

I am thinking of attempting a wild strain fermentation. I was curious to hear if and how well others experiments have gone. From what I understand the wild strains in the Pacific Northwest can be used with fair amount of success.

I've done it in the northeast and it's worked great! Expect longer lag times on the fermentation.

I am trying to collect wild yeast for the second time this morning. The first time was an utter failure. To be honest it won't kill me if this fails also.

How long are you letting your wort sit out for? What kind of container?

I am planning on using a fermentation bucket dedicated to wild strains. I was planning on leaving it out for 12 hours. I know this may end up a little sour but I'm fine with that.

I leave mine out for 12-24 always get good fermentation (even if sometimes doesn't taste as well.)

I was planning on 8 or so hours. I am used mid-sized spegetti sauce jars with voile fabric over the top to keep insects out. I figure I will let them ferment some then take a small sample with a straw and if it is ok make a small 1 gal batch of beer to build up a culture.
