Culturing kit? All you need is a box of pint-sized Mason jars and your brewpot in which to boil them and your washwater.

Well, since you're boiling the mason jars in your wash water, everything is already sanitized

I think (and I'm could be wrong) but when he says culturing, maybe he means a system to keep yeast alive... forever? Not washing. Or can you wash yeast over and over and over? Don't large breweries have setups that do this? Maybe not in mass amounts, but in a smaller amount.

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for but midwest supplies sells two different kits. Hope this helps.

Just go to the "Fermentation & Yeast" forum right here and see the sticky on slanting yeast. Never seen a better how-to. The only problem I had was getting the agar, so I went with jello and after a few runny mediums I got the amount right and it works just fine.
