I have been wanting to harvest yeast from this beer since I first saw the bits floating in the bottom of a bottle several years ago.
I made 500ml of 1.020 wort using extra light dme. It was the first time working with dme and I have to say it takes some getting used to...Very messy stuff.
Was also my first time using StarSan. I had always used Iodafor(sp). I like StarSan MUCH better.
I carefully emptied the cold bottles into my big mug but saved the last 1/5 or so and then flamed the bottle lips with my butane torch and poured the remaining into the wort. Put some sanitized foil over the top and gave a good shake. I have no clue when or if I will see any signs of activity. If I don't, I will pitch this all into 1000ml of 1.030 wort after 5 days. If I do, I will cold crash 2 days after activity ends.
Wish me luck.
