Awesome to hear. Lets hope they're into it.UnDeadPresident said:I've only ever heard of breweries being happy to share their yeast, provided you bring your own bottle. Sanitized swing-top seems to be the preferred receptacle.
I'm actually excited to hear what their response will be.Schemy said:The breweries here are always happy to help out the homebrewers with yeast. I usually give them 7-10 days notice when I ask. Just don't know what their cropping schedule may be. I also always try to bring them back some samples of the beer I brewed with said yeast.
So they said yea which is awesome. However they wont have any pitch able ale yeast ready until mid week next week. Suck because I am brewing Saturday. Still cool tho, ill have to inquire before my next brew.Nightshade said:I get free yeast from work all the time and give it to friends. I probably dump more slurry in a single batch than most homebrewers will use in 6 months or more.
Just make sure you wash it good then it should be able to be stored for quite a while. Also find out what generation it is, most yeast is good until about 7th or 8th then it is getting pretty used up.So they said yea which is awesome.

Yea I hear ya, the beer scene in my area is getting real good. I would rather them try my beers at that rate. Hell they're the pros.kevin476 said:I have literally got gallons of yeast from one of the most popular breweries here in Alaska, they are usually stoked and always wanna talk beer. It would really surprise me if they turned you down. I'm sure its getting asked for free beer that gets old with them.
