My grateful thanks go to Erik A. Henchal for his detailed discussion
of yeast culturing. This is exactly the information I've been looking
for in regard to propagation of yeast. At the end, he asks:

No, not in the "neighborhood" but in my HOUSE. This is due to the
phenomenal insulation properties of logs. As for the ambient temps,
in the summer the swing is from 90 degrees daytime to fourty degrees
at night, easily. We also have about a good two months growing
season (central Oregon). After considerable suspended animation
up to the end of June, my hops is now flowering. I hope the frosts
hold off until the buds are ripe.
