I play porn for em to get them in the mood to reproduce.

The trick is finding which type of porn to play for the strain of yeast your using. Some like bondage and s&m, others like girl girl, some like traditional and some like some freakish fetish stuff.

There is your first problem, these studies are not legitimate.

I play fast aggressive music (punk or metal) for my carboys a few times a week, for about 1.5 hrs each time. It's coincidental that my fermentation quarters are also the workout room and they only get their entertainment when I'm lifting. I like to think that the fast music convinces the yeast to get off their arses and have little microscopic mosh pits.

I think the freaky stuff only works for German styles.

So would soft core work for domestic strains? A little Cinemax after dark for 1056?

I read my last batch "the Giving Tree" and it got depressed and would never carbonate.

Try a Hustler next time. If they don't rock and roll with that, then you have some really depressed yeast or maybe they're just gay.
