Ok, sure this is a longshot but I'm getting desperate. The whales club is doing 45 gallons of Bock via steinbier method this coming Sunday and while I have a few slurries of yeast in the fridge, I'm concerned that I won't have enough for the volume we're using. If you have any kind of European lager fermenting away right now and ready to rack in the next few day, I'd really appreciate it if you'd collect the cake in a sanitized container for me. I'll be sure to repay the favor with a few bottles of the resulting "Stein Bock". Anyone?

The only yeast I've got in the fridge is 1028. You're welcome to it if it can help.

Thanks Joe, one of the other members picked up some yeast and got a starter going. I'm hoping a full 5 gallon cake, a one quart slurry, and a 2liter starter built from a vial is going to be enough for 45 gallons.

Too bad I'm so far away

Got a nice thick cake of Coors Yeast from a CAP and will have a Dopplebock 2124 cake Sunday

Good luck, might want to try and track down some 34/70 but if you have 1 1/2 quarts of good thick slurry you should be ok.

Make a first wort starter with a little of the second runnings so you can ensure its active and healthy
