Doesn't seem to be much interest.

Anyone need 2038 munich lager?
I'm about to make some slants. I can make extra if anyone wants one, let me know in the next half hour.

I will take you up on your munich lager slants. I've been busy at work but once it subsides I'll try to get this project moving. Not sure how but I'll try. Maybe a group buy with a prerequisite that you must exchange yeast with others to participate. :-)

Made you a couple of slants. They should be ready in about a week. I still have to use your belgian? yeast you gave me. I need a recipe.

Hey all,
So I have some Petri dishes with yeast and some culture tubes with yeast and I'm not entirely sure how to fill out this information out. Some of the yeast are straight out of the bag, i.e. I had some left over in the bag post pitching and I just diluted it down with some clean water and placed them on petri dishes and on slants. So in this case are they generation 1 or generation 0? The reason I ask is because most my "slants" are in this format, thought I do have some stored away in liquid form as well.

Also, if anyone is interested in having slants made I might be able to do them for you, as long as you provide the materials. I work in a lab and have access to an autoclave, and some sterile pipettes, as well as glassware and ultrapure water.

Also, another thing i should mention, although slanting and washing of the yeast is fine, another alternative, which might be even better, is to save them in a glycerol "freezer stock" which will remain viable for a much longer period of time, and which only requires that you scrape some of the freezer stock into a solution and let it go.
