Updating my current stock:

WLP400 frozen and slanted
WLP013 frozen and slanted
WY1469 frozen and slanted
WY9097 slanted
WY1728 slanted

In the interest of saving space in my freezer, I'm now slanting all current and future strains (3-4 slants per strain) with a 2% agar media.

Have you tried reusing the WY9097 from your culture yet? I would suspect that since its a blend you wouldn't get the same results as the original. Even if you were able to grab cells from each strain it won't be in the same proportions as the original blend.

I haven't - and this is something that I was thinking about while I was making up the slants. Tricky, tricky!

Alright time to do a true exchange. Post the strains you have available, how they were stored (frozen, plate, slant, distilled suspension), and a wish list for strains you'd like to try.

OK, I'll go first.

I have:

WLP002 English Ale (Fuller's Strain) - Frozen
WY1275 Thames Valley Ale (Henley of Thames Strain) - Frozen

As an aside, I finally found glycerine that wasn't contained in a supository, but not before asking about 20 pharmacists all over my area if they had any. It gets annoying after the first few tries of asking whether they have any glycerine and having them look at you funny. For the benefit of anyone still looking, I finally found a 4 oz bottle of the stuff in the lotion/handcream aisle at the drug store. Apparently glycerine is not only a good laxative, it is a "skin protectant" too!

Looking for:

West Yorkshire Ale
and any other unique English ale strains

One way to get fewer funny looks is to call only pharmacies that list "compounding" as one of their services. They tend to make meds from scratch like the Olden Days, and are very used to having people (and other pharmacies) call and ask about the availability of various ingredients.

There are things they won't sell you, of course, but the funny look ratio should take a nosedive.

I needed some food grade glycerin for a product I was testing at work. Health food stores sell glycerin. I called around and found a store that sold an 8oz bottle.

Now I get it in 50 lb pails at work!

Brian,

Would you prefer a frozen sample or a slant for the 1469?

Jason, I'd prefer frozen but if it's easier to ship a slant that's fine too. I'm planning on getting an innoculation loop soon so I should be able to use it.

No worries, I can send the frozen vial. PM me with your address.



Oh, almost forgot! A Wish List!

The Duchess de Bourgeone strain. I've not been able to determine if the fermentation strain is in the bottle.
