    To anyone who may see this. It has been some time since anyone has posted on this subject. I
    started growing hops, Cascade, Fuggle and Northern Brewer. The Cascade is doing the best, but
    should I dig ...

    Indefinite storage requires -80C or liquid nitrogen storage - at conventional freezer temps
    (-15C to -20C) frozen stock are stable for ~2 years (the exact time depends on how stable your
    freezer is, a...

    Just want to clear up the confusion a bit, hopeful ly. There is no such thing as top fermenting
    vs bottom fermenting. Ales and lagers both ferment while in suspension. For whatever reason the
    term "to...

    I don't know about packman, but the old-school way of storing yeasts (on a slant, underneath
    mineral oil) reportedly allowed recovery of yeast that were 20-30+ years old. This wasn't
    normal, as these ...

    Got it - so the ideal would be to get the liquid because of the yeast that is suspended in it
    and maximize that to pitch. i think i'm understandingMy understanding is that ale yeast is a
    top fermenter...

    Wasn't Pacman yeast cultured from slurry someone found in the back of their fridge after 20
    years or something? 4? Not such a big deal. :DI'm intrigued now. Do you have a source for this?
    I'd love to ...

    I just made a starter from some Pacman yeast i washed and referigerated back in Oct 2010, so
    nearly 4 years. 1500 ml starter at 1.038 Og. Been on the stirplate for about 12 hrs. Plan to
    give it 4 or 5...

    Just posted a thread about reviving yeast collected using this protocol after ~13 months: else
    done similar? Longer?

    When I first started poking around this forum, being a microbiologist, I quickly found the
    stickied yeast washing protocol: been using this washing for over a year now and haven't had
    to buy yeast in...

    Just finished my daily visit to the hop garden and discovered somebody is hungry. I found a 1/2
    dozen cascade cones that look as if they have been gnawed on. Any ideas on who the uninvited
    dinner migh...
