Old yeast anyone?

Postby blksabbath » Mon Mar 05, 2018 9:01 pm

If nothing else, wash the test tubes and reuse them. Anyone interested? CL50 and CL930, Sierra Nevada from Sierra Nevada a long time ago. Maybe (probably) dead, but free if you want this box of magic.

I'd be interested in them. If anything those tubes are cool for making tap handles out of. I guess if you use a calculator it would tell you the viability is 0% of course. I recently got a packet of white labs from 2015 at Friar Tuck, made a starter, used some yeast nutrient, it took about a week but the yeast did come back to good health! This is different though as those tubes are 10+ years old.

I recently successfully brought back to life a pack of Wyeast from 2014. I made a small starter and then stepped it up. Wasn't sourced from Friar Tuck, though.
