Great idea. Let me know when you plan it.

This is great, especially for the bottle dregs variety. I currently wash but would love an in-person best practices demo on slanting before turning it over to other people.

You would know of your slant was bad. If you only see yeast its good. You would be able to see an infection growing. So I've read. haven't had a bad one yet....knock on wood

I was thinking about putting a demo together. I was thinking of buying some bulk vials, and pre making some slants. Have everyone coming bring a different strain of yeast. Then demonstrate how to make slants and how to slant yeast. Then at the end people can take home multiple vials of new yeast. I would charge for vials and agar. I would guess under a dollar per vial.

Trying to find a source for cheap vials with screw on caps.

Anyone interested besides me? To make slants you need a pressure cook to sterilize everything.

However if there was enough interest we could meet every so often to replenish slants. It doesn't take to long. So you guys can drop them back off to me and I can remake them. Maybe.

Wyeast has ~36 ale yeasts. If 12 people were interested, you could get a slant of each for about $60 a head... tempting.

36 varieties x12 people = 432 vials (budget $1 per so $432)
36 fresh smacks x $7 = $252

That's not bad. We don't have to start with all the stains. Just whatever everyone brings. You can also make new slants from slants on hand.
