>My question to you is what is the proper way to do this whole thing:
cutting, rooting, planting...? If anyone has any information by which I can
improve, it would be very generous and welcomed. Thanks

Not sure about proper but I bought two small plants this winter and turned
them into 8 by Spring.

I simply took about two inches of the growing tips of several branches from
each plant. These I put in water and they grew roots within about two weeks
and were then planted in soil.

I also found that if dipped in Rootone, they could be planted directly in
potting soil and rooted readily.

There doesn't seem to be any reason to use root risomes as the branches root
just as easily.

Whitbred Yeast...

Someone just posted an article about Whitbred yeast being a combination of
several strains. Is this a fact or another momily? Does it apply to the dry
version?

I just pure cultured some from a pack of dry and will be pitiching in my next
batch. If it is true, I just wasted a lot of effort.
