    Hopefully having a hopped medium that the yeast can beat mold to would be enough. That's what I
    did. But I was taking yeast from the great outdoors, not from my house, hvac, and critters.

    Brewed up a batch on Sunday and fermented it with the descendants of the yeast I captured on
    Twin Peaks in San Francisco back on 2012-02-26 in an extra gallon of wort I'd brewed.Guess I
    should have kn...

    You want wort instead of pure sugar, because you're hoping to catch something that survives

    Why cover it with cotton--you WANT something to get in there.For my first capture i just put

    new bottl...

    Just discovered this thread. Here's my first experiment:Back in ~ February 2012 I made a batch
    of Imperial Stout. 5 gallons went into the bucket, but I'd made a bit extra so I siphoned out
    about 2/3rd...

    >>I have my mixing bucket on the bench full of Wort & my Fermenter below it, I open the tap on
    the bucket & let the Wort drop into the Fermenter adding the yeast as it drops. This gives
    "plenty" of ae...
