I just caught some local yeast using a 1.030 wort. I've got a few bottles that have krausen waste stuck in a ring on the top and smell quite good. Now that I have a few local strains, I was trying to figure out how to harvest and propagate it.
Right now I'm thinking I'll swirl it up, grab it with a loop and streak a plate, harvest the good colonies and then propagate those in 10ml 100ml and 1 liter batches.
Does that make sense? Any better methods? Advice?
May my sour beers bless your input!
