Default For Sale - WTT - Wanted to Trade Yeast

So do people trade yeast on this forum? I've only been around a few weeks, but I haven't seen any yeast trading going on. I've seen a few things online about how to ship yeast on some 3m medium wrapped in foil, or just straight up slants. Or is it like you can't really trust that you are getting what you are told you are getting so people don't trade?

Any help?

Don't take it personally, but many folks, myself included, don't trade anything with non-supporting members due to the anonymous nature of free accounts.

Folks that support the forum, are registered and paid are not anonymous anymore and can setup these kind of trades in a separate section of the forum not accessible to the free accounts.

Just my two pfennigs.

edwort. I never looked into getting an account cause i havent brewed very much and an still getting started (i dont have much to trade that anyone would really want). I have tried searching for what VIP forums there are but cant find anything. Could you please tell me what these forums are or is rule #1 your not allowed to talk about vip forums? Im a pour grad student and money is not the easiest thing to dish out. Just wondering if it is worth the money. P.S. - your Haus Pale Ale is up next on my list

Check ur balance in your profile page. Maybe someone else can pitch in. I too, have been in your position and know the meaning of frugality. You seem like a legit, eager to learn person. Enjoy. Send me some yeast!

Edit: Oh wait, not the yeast person. Whatever, send me some beer, I still think your legit. This ain't creepy is it?

wow! and just like that im a member! thank you so much reelale! I will def. repay you in some way. Ive been trying to get into washing yeast as a cost cutting measure and was looking at slanting. I do have lots of cell culture experience so i should get some nice clean slants going!

****feeling like a second class citizen, I'm just a poor man trying to make some beer *****

I just found the forum, not sure I want to pay $25 bucks a year for the privilege of having more space in my inbox and an avatar.

But that being said, if I did become a supporter, are there secret forums where paid members actively trade yeast? That might be worth the cash.

Maybe........
I think of it as an investment of keeping the forum what it is. a very active place with very helpful and for the most part polite people. there is a techy somewhere slaving away to keep this place running I'm paying for his (her) caffeine and brewing ingredients. in return we get the awesomeness that is HBT
