Nice work Yeasty, although having the word FAIL so prominent in the pictures doesn't instill a lot of confidence
I was thinking the same thing...sterile enough....FAIL
So how do you innoculate the slants once you've finished? I tried the freezing yeast in gelatin recently with mixed results. Mixed results being that half have frozen while the other half seem like theyre ok. I have tried to start them yet
FFS its like being back in school....
I'll innoculate them with a wire loop once I'm happy they are sterile..I'm just practicing at the moment, I've got some washed yeast in the fridge and a bottle of Coniston Bluebird I'm going to culture up from the dregs.
I've read a couple of threads about freezing, it seems a Yeast/water/Glycerin ratio of 50/25/25% is the way to go. What was your ratio's seems strange half have frozen whilst the other half haven't..
