I'm still pretty green at brewing, but I went on a tour of Victory brewing this saturday and convinced a brewer to give me some yeast!!! I'm pretty darn pumped, it came out of a tank fermenting a wet hopped IPA.

I brought a bottle full of starsan with me, that's what I used to bring it home, then put it in the fridge. Any suggestions on making it last? make a bunch of starters, the refridge?

Cool but what yeast is it?
Being an IPA they may be looking for something clean/neutral and - in theory - they could simply use US05.

If you have some test tubes or small vials, you could store some in that, make some slants easily enough, or just split it like it is now into small beer-bottles - it should keep for at least a few months like that.

Thanks for the info wolfy, they mostly culture all of their own yeast there. He assured me this was a good california type ale yeast. He actually tried to get me some from a fresh culture, but it ended up not being quite ready.
