I am thinking about running a clinic to teach folks how to slant yeast and isolate yeast strains. It would be everything from making the slants to streaking plates to isolating single cell colonies. If I can find 10 or so people interested I would be happy to do the class.

If you are interested send me a PM

Wish I were closer. I am in the process of collecting the things I need to start slanting.

I might see if we can use the classroom at the Craft Beer Cellars in Newton Centre. It is right on the T and has plenty of parking.

Looking good. Also there is going to be a few things that are needed for each person to have for the class. I was thinking that I could go to the lab supply store and buy the stuff there. It would be tubes, agar agar, DME, inoculation loops, alcohol lamp, test tube rack and Petri dishes. Folks would also need a presure cooker when they got home to sterilize the plates and tubes.

Would it be better if we brought some of our own stuff (ie. DME)?

I have about 50# of old DME that isn't good for brewing but just fine for slants and starters. So I can bring a few pounds of if with out really cutting into my stash.

The rest of the stuff is cheaper if you buy say a box of loops and a case of lamps. You can get the lamps for like $6 or less in bulk.
