If anything, it may be brettanomyces. What you saw may be the start of a pellicle. Its a
coating on top of the beer that Brett produces as a response to oxygen exposure. If that's the
case, you will l...

No. When you decant off the spent wort, the yeast cells you just grew are sitting there in the
flask waiting for the fresh meal.1.090 ale or lager? For a 1.090 ale, I'd consider brewing a

You should be able to boil the silicon ring. I'd fill the fermentor with star San and let it

I use the vials the OP suggested, and the 100ml media bottles from the same company.Since I
don't have a microscope or a hemocytometer I don't bother guesstimating cell count. All guesses
are wildly o...

Do you fill the 100ml all the way or do you only fill them half way? So what you are saying is
you begin the first propagation step by using 100ml? So when you are ready to propagate you
transfer a lo...

So do you adjust the gravity for each dilution? Or do you just assume that the dilution will
not effect the outcome enough to impact it?Do you take any steps for counting cells? Or just
assume that th...

You could make 4 or 5 tubes with media, and skip the agar so it is sterile media. That way you
can measure out 10ml in each tube and autoclave it. Set them aside and when you are ready to

It is preferable to pull a colony from the slant and inoculate the new 10ml culture as opposed
to filling the slant with media. Pulling a colony or a few colonies and inoculating your new
