Ask wegz15. He sold a few during the last group buy.

I have slants of Wyeast 3522 and 1056 that I could trade at the collection for the group buy. This was my first attempt at making them but I think they turned out OK. I might have a few others depending on how soon it happens.

If I brew what I have planned in the next week, I should also be able to bring some top-cropped Wyeast 1318 and 1469 to the collection for the group buy.

I have some recently used WLP 300, WLP 001, WLP I can bring to the group buy for the collection also.

I have a yeast harvesting question for you guys, I love certain types of german wiezes and they of course always have yeast on the bottom of the bottles that can be harvested. I have never tried to harvest any but would it be feasable of me doing such and getting a usable product out of such a small amount of yeast?

I just tapped a wee heavy that I made using this yeast and it is phenomenal! I have like 2-3 jars only to share unfortunately. First come first serve.
