Raleigh, NC area yeast swap
 
Hi guys,

Last night when I racked, I saved most of the yeast in 2 mason jars. This gave me the idea that we should start reusing each others yeast. It doesn't get much more vital than from the primary and it would be a great pitching rate as well.

So right now I have

2nd generation WYeast 1056 taken from primary 03/14/06
1st generation WYeast Bavarian Lager taken from primary 03/04/06

I've got some 1056 (4th gen), but it's pretty old (3+ mos).
3068 Weihenstephan (1st gen, good amount and ~4-6 weeks).
I've got some 1332 Northwest Ale (1st gen) sitting in my primary sealed up, but haven't decided whether or not to harvest any yet (probably will).

Great idea.

I'd be interested in this one. But I don't plan to brew a Weissbier until the end of the Month. I first have to get the Oktoberfest done.

I've got three 8oz jars with about an 3cm or yeast each, so I can save you one. I'm going to use one for my Aventinus, as well, unless I'm convinced otherwise between now and then.

That's a great idea: I save yeast, but at the relatively modest rate at which I brew, I'm never sure if I'll be able to use it.

If anyone is anywhere near my off-the-beaten path neck of the woods (Manhattan, KS), I have some Wyeast 1214 (Abbey Ale) and am about to collect some 3333 (German Wheat) that I'd be willing to swap.

cweston,

You may have better luck if you start your own thread about this. People from KS may not read something titled Raleigh, NC

i read it....i'm not sure why, but i did... i think i just don't like the look of that one bold-titled post on the new posts page.

I'm not trying to kick people out of the tread. But I usually filter the threads by name and if it doesn't strike my interest, I ignore it.

Oops: I've been mostly using the "new posts" feature to read posts here: I don't always notice what forum the thread is in.

Baron von BeeGee 03-14-2006 03:06 PM

Incidentally, the 3333 would have been my first choice for for my Aventinus...wish you were closer! 3068 is what I've got...
