Your Home Yeast Made Easy – Aseptic Techniques

The third of my “Your Home Yeast Lab Made Easy” series is now up on youtube! This video is the most important video I will produce as part of this series. The skills I discuss in this video are central to keeping yeast samples uncontaminated – are key and indispensable skill for any brewer interested in taking their yeast culturing activities beyond making starters and washing yeast. You must master these skills if you want to slant or freeze yeast, purify yeast strains, or engage in any form of advanced yeast culturing. In the world of yeast culture, these skills are the your tricycle – until you learn to “ride” these techniques you are not ready to ride the two-wheeler.

I’ve been trying to keep these video’s short, and broke that rule with this one, but the length is for a good reason – these skills are critical for any intermediary or advanced yeast-culturing method, and a 5 minute video simply cannot do this topic justice.

I know my video’s are not everyone’s cup of tea, so here are some other good resources for those needing additional information, or who get put to sleep by me droning on for 10 minutes…

      Not as effective as a flame, you still need a flame with a SAB to sanitise tools, SABs are more difficult to work with properly, and cost far more to construct than a burner.
