Subject: Beer to culture yeasts from
Date: 1992-07-19 18:28:59 GMT

I would like to brew a pale ale, and am considering culturing yeasts
from another beer for it. The obvious source for good, fresh yeast
would be Sierra Nevada PA, but the problem is that it is not available
for sale in Michigan.* So I would like to know if there are any other
beers available which would be good sources for yeast. Does Bell's
from Kalamazoo have yeast in the bottle (it's been too long since i've
had some)?

* The reason given to me by a local package store operator is that
Sierra Nevada has applied to the state's LCB three times and failed
each time. He didn't know why.
