I’ve been asked many times here on my blog, on my YouTube channel, and in person, to do some videos and posts about how to employ some of the methods I use in my lab to culture yeast in the home. I’ve long been promising to prepare videos that do just that, and today I begin making good on that promise!
This is the first video in a planned series of 9 or 10 videos. The goal is to keep the videos short as to give the information in easily-digestible bites. This first video shows you how to set-up a workspace in your home for yeast culturing.
At this time I have video filmed for two additional episodes – how to make an alcohol lamp (a DIY Bunsen burner), and how to do a streak plate. Watch for these over the next few days! Future videos will include:
- Basic sterile techniques
- Preparation of starters
- Preparation & use of agar plates in the home lab
- Preparation & use of slants in the home lab
- Freezing yeast at home
- Purifying wild yeast
