Just noticed the airlock in the pics. You need oxygen to get in there for yeast growth to occur don't you? Tin foil or foam stoppers for starters, airlocks for beer making. And the tin foil has the added benefit of stopping aliens from controlling your yeasty beasties from afar. Nothing worse than alien controlled yeast. Don't ask me how I know.

Good point.. I normally use foil for starters... I was thinking the length of time it would be in there would make an airlock better.. I think I will switch to foil tonight. Do toy think I should put it on a stir plate?

Ok, today there was a very small amount of bubbles on top of the wort. I put a sanitized stir bar in, switched to foil and put it on my stir plate.

My plan is to plate from whatever is in there and try to isolate a few colonies and then step up and make something from there. I want to make sure I slant and keep whatever strain I am working with so I can keep the strain going. I got dreams here. I made a few blank plates last night. I figure on letting it grow another week then do the plating. (I wanted to have the plates ready well ahead of time so that I would know if I screwed that part up and got them contaminated before then. First time plating as well.

I also just gave it a smell and there was definitely the smell of CO2. Kinda had a farmhouse ale smell to it. Of course I just bought some farmhouse ale so I could be imagining that part. lol but the CO2 for sure.

It will be interesting to see what you come up with in that neck of the woods. Are you rural or urban? I plan to do something like this here in VERY rural Colorado. Keep us posted!

Check out this video from Brewing TV. Jeremy in the video works at Northern Brewer here in Milwaukee. He successfully isolated a native Wisconsin yeast for Lakefront Brewery to use.
