A growler is fine, and likely the best thing to use in place of a E-flask since it is large and will let you easily rouse the yeast with a good shake. And yes, please return the slants at the next meeting or whenever is convenient. They are reusable indefinitely and we only have a limited supply at the moment. This week I hope to propagate some more yeast and make up some fresh slants. We should also have wyeast 1084 added to the collection soon.

I decided to transfer starter to Growler when I stepped it up. Growlers are a great size, but I don't really like it because I can't see what's going on inside. Maybe it's because I'm new at starters and not confident about it, but I like to see the activity and yeast slurry build up. Next time, using clear glass.

After I get brewing again, I will be contributing the Forbidden Fruit yeast, and I also have cultured some Ringwood in a Best Bitter bottle to contribute.

We are running low on yeast slants, so if you have borrowed from the library, please return them soon so we can replenish the supply. Also, since the membership numbers and available yeast varieties have grown, we will soon be increasing our library capacity from 125 slants to 250. Happy brewing.

Yes, a signout sheet, limits on number of slants borrowed at once, and other measures are being considered.

It would be nice to know what yeasts are in the library. I really dont think the first post of this thread is accurate. Thanks.
