I have 3 strains going right now. WY1272, WLP862, WLP001. I have Munton's Gold and Safale 05 packs in the fridge as backups in case a starter fails to launch.

I buy an fresh activator of 1098 and 1056 fresh at the beginning of my brew season and wash/grow them as I need.

Right now, only wild yeasts and bacteria cultured from dregs of commercial sour beers.

I froze all my yeast (in 15% glycerin solution).
So far I have 5 different strains and I"m looking to expand it for some Belgium strains when whether gets cooler.

Can I wash and save yeast that I stepped up from bottle dregs?

Of course. You could just stick it in the fridge though, if its a small amount. If its large, it might be worth washing. Or you could pitch it in your next batch and then wash from there.

Well I plan on stepping them up, pitching to a batch, then washing to save it.

SKEWED POLL.

sorry, but the title calls out to yeast bankers.

I would wager that most HBTers do NOT bank, but wish they did, and so will avoid the thread.

"Do YOU Bank yeast or not?" would have gotten better results.


Don't get me wrong, a good discussion will undoubtably happen.
