    Yeah, that would be it. I'm interested in the brown/orange things. They don't look like any
    yeast I've seen, which is why I am wondering what it is. I've been looking around online for
    pics and I can'...

    I've been doing this for at least a month now, with little success. This time, I took a few
    extra precautions and used DME/agar mix.I looked at the sample this morning and I don't really
    see anything ...

    Just got both your messages (browser seems to be buggy or something). I'll keep this in mind in
    the future. I've posted an update to this thread of what I've got so far. Things seem to be
    going well s...

    You don't need hops for a starter.The idea is to weed out any unwanted bacteria that might
    still be lurking in the colony and any brett -- also to influence flavor. Yes, might sound
    noobish, but from ...

    Well, I poured my first agar plate a few days ago (with the help from a friend) and it turned
    out beautiful! A lot better than I expected. We are going to pour two more generations (the 2nd
    being almo...

    if you don't have DME or hops, what are you going to do with the yeast? :)The idea is that I
    will have an initial "catcher jar" and let it grow until I get yeast. Then I will take the
    yeast from the j...

    Hello, this is my first time trying to capture wild yeast and I had a few questions...A bit of
    background to procedures first:I am using a mason jar (as suggested by the wiki) and practiced

    Well, fermentation's pretty much complete - the yeast's just cleaning things up now. I've got
    it sitting in the freezer around 68dF, because my home tends to get pretty warm in the
    summertime.Yeah, te...

    when i racked off the blueberries a week after i saw this growth, the SG was like 1.001 and has
    since dropped to .9998 - lowest i've ever seen. Holy hell! that's the most amazing thing I have
    ever hea...

    Yes! Do 60 min for your mash. Also, keep a brewing schedule with you to not miss any steps and
    keep track of time to know where you are at.

Just bottled Dogfish Head's 60 Minute IPA. It turned out very well and is quite drinkable, even flat! However, I couldn't get any of the proprietary hops so I had to substitute them.



Recipe and more details should be added at a later date. In the mean time, more yeast wrangling for my next batch (boy those little buggers seem to be illusive).
