**** fools like I say I'm a diagnostic supervisor in a food microbiology lab ... I have access to an autoclave instead of sterilizing at home with a pressure cooker ... I can bring all the supplies needed to slant and I can also provide slants I would be more then happy to teach aseptic technique and proper slanting ... **** is easy if you follow some simple rules as far as what I want ... Just some of the yeast and enough cash to cover supplies if you want some I can sell on the spot or pm me ... Also pm me with any questions and I'll try to get back to you in a timely fashion ... I can and would love to teach anyone how to be successful at slanting just setup a time and place ... Hopefully somewhere on the south side or northwest Indiana but I can travel too just might take a bit o planning to schedule something.

Can I just add that we are not limited to just slanting? I eventually want to learn how to slant (did you hear that professor wegz?) but in the meantime I will wash yeast. I'm thinking that we start "building" the bank with whatever form we currently use just to build up the variety of yeasts available. However, I will go along with everyone elses suggestions. Again, these are just my initial thoughts. Comments, rebuttals are always welcomed.

How many would be interested in getting culture tubes to slant? I might buy a case of 1000 plus 1000 caps. They would be no more than $0.75 a set. Don't need 1000 so if there isn't that much interest I'm not buying them.

A set consists of one tube and one cap? If so, then the price per 1000 would be $750.00? That seems pretty steep if that's the case.

I'm interested in learning yeast washing or slanting or both, but I wouldn't be up for buy too many supplies without understanding how both processes work and the necessary storage. Storage space is my most limiting factor as it is for many in Chicago.

The 75 cents is a max. Only did a little bit of searching. Not sure how much shipping Is or if there is a cheaper source yet.
