Banking yeast on agar slants, at least that's what I'm doing.

I plan on doing a frozen bank once I get my tubes I will pick up some food grade glycerin and hopefully my centrifuge off ebay. Then spin out most of the water add some glycerin and slowly freeze it. I figure if I have 5 different types of yeast and 5 vials of each strain. I can brew what I want and not have to buy yeast for years. Use one vial 5 to 10 time each time washing the yeast cake. then move to the next vial of that yeast rinse and repeat. Once I use up that vial I will then have 2 vials of generation 2 then use up both those go to then next vial rinse and repeat. I know there is math there but I a to lazy to figure it at the moment

It is a lot of batches though.

You can do the same thing buy flooding the slant with glycerin. Streak the slant like normal then let it grow for a few days until you get some nice big colonies. Flood it with glycerin. One thing is you need to freeze as fast as you can. slow freezing makes huge ice crystals that kill the yeast. When I buy a Tube or packet of yeast I use it to streak 10 to 20 slants then use the rest to make a starter. I figure I can get about 100 ten gallon batches out of one tube or pack. When I am ready to make a batch I take a slant out of the freezer and into the fridge once it is thawed I will dump most of the glycerin and use a bit of starter wort to rinse the yeast off the slant. That goes into a 250ml starter that is in a 500ml flask. After a day spent spinning I add 100ml more starter and let that go for 12 hours. At that point you can stop or most times I go into a 1000ml or 1500ml starter from there. After you do that once you can use the yeast cake washed or not for up to 10 generations with out re-culturing it.

I could look in to petri dishes. Would anyone be interested in pre made and sterilized slants?
