We need to start a yeast club, lol. I can't wait to start freezing yeast and build up a bank. Right now I have just gotten into washing previous used cakes and splitting into two or more slurries for starters, but after what I have read lately on here I am definitely going to buy some vials at the LHBS and freeze what I don't pitch into my first starter with that yeast.

I have a frozen yeast bank, and like to freeze Platinum and VSS strains that won't be back for a while, or ever. I freeze most everything else too though.

I would love to have a large selection and it would really come in handy during the summer when I can't get yeast shipped without the box hitting 100*F.

I started out using lots of different yeasts for every beer so I never had any particular stock on hand. I've simplified almost all my recipes now. I keep lots of Nottingham in stock, also WYeast 3068 for my brothers hefeweizens. That covers most beers I make except for the occasional specialty Belgian strain. I do mostly english style ales and lots of stouts so the Nottingham works great for what I want.

I figure I will have a couple of house stanard ale yeasts like california ale, kolsch, etc. I am just getting into lagers though so I would like to try a few different strains.

I'm definitely going to have to try Nottingham, I hear so much about it on this community.
