Default Ginger Beer Plant source

I am wondering if there is any place that you can order GBP?

I've done a bit more research, and these folks seem rather awesome...
15 bucks for the culture, 5 flat rate for shipping, and the people seem fantastic.

Reason: spellign

I used a ton of ginger ground up, It looks like a lot was in the liquid and settled after a while. Its really hard to tell what is what. There is some slime but i cant tell what is sludge or ginger beer plant. Its cold here and its slow as heck really.

Dunno, mine's been in storage for about a year or so. I really should break it out and do up a couple of batches. Mayhap one of Ginger and one of Vanilla Cream. Mmmm....Blueberry Cream soda.....
