Default Im trying to brew at my parents but left my yeast at home four hours away.

I quit reading before that line. Haha. Making a yeast starter from your bottles should work out!

You could brew right before you leave. Show him how it's done, drive the four hours home and pitch the yeast when you get there.

Not sure if you have done a starter before, but 10 grams of dry extract to 100 ml of water will get you close to 1.040 gravity. Hopefully your dad has a small kitchen scale. Just 'steal' a little of the dme from the kit to make a starter. If you get it going tonight or early on Saturday, should be able to pitch Saturday night.

Also. Don't drink out of the bottles your harvesting out of. Pour it into a glass. Your starter needs to be super sanitary or you will grow a funky starter. Which will make funk beer.

When are you going home? You could brew, and just pitch the yeast when you get home if it's not a long time.

What town are you in in N. WI? I might know of someone who can help you out, depending on where you are.
