Default Ginger Beer Plant source

I am wondering if there is any place that you can order GBP?

I've done a bit more research, and these folks seem rather awesome...
15 bucks for the culture, 5 flat rate for shipping, and the people seem fantastic.

I used a ton of ginger ground up, It looks like a lot was in the liquid and settled after a while. Its really hard to tell what is what. There is some slime but i cant tell what is sludge or ginger beer plant. Its cold here and its slow as heck really.

What's the basic process using their gbp? Culture enough you can draw some off and then forever culture?

Dunno, mine's been in storage for about a year or so. I really should break it out and do up a couple of batches. Mayhap one of Ginger and one of Vanilla Cream. Mmmm....Blueberry Cream soda.....
