This looks like a great project. I hope I can participate once I get up to harvesting and washing my yeast instead of buying.

And reducing the buying along with variety is the ultimate goal. I'll enter my yeast later on today.

OK, along with the spreadsheet link which anyone can now edit, I have added the neat (for the lack of a better word) results form that has the graphics. The link is on the form underneath the spreadsheet link. Get your yeast on!

I just want to reiterate that this project was the brain child of wernerherzog. I wish I could take credit for it but I can't. I just put the form together. I hope we're onto something here. It would be great if people started harvesting bottle dregs too. How cool would that be?

I have a bottle of Matilda for some dreg harvesting. Maybe we could hold a yeast workshop to teach washing yeast, slanting, stir plate building, etc. We could even group buy a ton of autoclavable test tubes. I always see them so much cheaper in quantities I don't need.

I'll be able to wash some bell's two hearted yeast dregs after my clone ferments. I forgot how many cells I had from three bottles, but I pitched 300 billion cells.
