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.
that was one of the many tings that made me want to pursue this.. wish they would make more episodes

I live in the burbs... so it was rural but now not so much though still far from any real downtown. Right now my hopes are high since it looks like I have some fermentation happening. I expect to have some yeast... the real question will be what kind of beer will it make well.. if any?

You should definitely give it a try in CO... i am having a blast just seeing what happens.

Slant up some of what you get and if mine is worth a damn we can talk about trading some yeast.

I think Chip from BTV is still making episodes under a new name on YouTube now. I still haven't found it though. I saw a post by him somewhere on HBT but I forgot where. If I find the new videos I'll post a link here for you.

Might be a while before I jump into capturing & slanting, but hell yes I'll swap yeast with you...wait...that didn't sound right...

Im thinking of trying this now. Wonder if it would work well in a saison?

Things are slow going. I measured again and the change in gravity was barely perceptible. I just added a pinch of yeast energizer to see if that helps it along. I am worried that whatever yeast I have is very weak and may not be suitable for the intended purpose.

Not giving up on this attempt yet though. Another week before I know.

And of course if this isn't a success... I'll be on to attempt #2! Never giving up.. I know this can work.

Thought I'd join you in this. My son (8) and I set up the experiment, we made some 1.030 wort, let it sit out from 5:30-9:00 in the back yard, transferred to a 1gal jug and air locked it. Within a day we had noticeable sediment, it still had a sweet smell, day 2 had a noticeable funk and rotten smell, day 3 the same, day 4 the funk stayed and the rotten smell had gone away. It had the smell of a good Belgium brew. We went to Hobby Lobby and they have a petridish set of 2 and agar for 2.99. went home and made a 1/2 and 1/2 agar wort mix, boiled and set to cool. sterilized the counter and equipment and used a paperclip for the yeast loop. We inoculated the two dishes and are waiting to see what we grow. We live in a neighborhood, however we are surrounded by quite a few open fields, and being in OK its always windy and fairly flat. Assuming we can harvest a good colony, we'll set up a starter on the stir plate (tornado maker we built a few weekends ago) and go from there. I'm thinking of using a Belgium blond recipe, assuming the yeast has a good funk to it.
