Can anyone and everyone who has experience with yeast culturing please send
me detailed info on the process. I am interested in all aspects and every
level from the simplest homebrew processes to the most elaborate brewery
techniques (at least those used by micros and brewpubs.) I have had a basic
microbiology class in college, but I need specifics such as media recipes
for stock culture maintainance and media recipes for selection and separation
of bacterial contaminants and wild yeast identification. Also, does anyone
know of a book or article describing the aforementioned subjects with regard
to microbrewery applications? I have access to a small incubator and also to
a small autoclave, plus incidental equipment. Eventually, I would like to
develop a standard procedure for stock maintainance and purity analysis for
homebrewers who are courageous enough to venture into this realm.

Thanks very much,
