My understanding is it's a copy (or same strain?) as the Wyeast 1272 American Ale II.

I'm up for pizza and beer! just not any time on the next two weeks, as I'm moving :D

So do we have a standard method for preperation and dividing the cultures up? I'd suggest the bulk buy bottles be the container of choice, that way we all end up with a nice set. It would be good to have a standard starter and step protocol, so we end up with yeast of similar quantity and wuality in each containers. What do you all think?

I have the wit and irish ale on plates at the moment so when they grow up big and strong I will make up a starter and split it.

Good point on containers - should we make say a large starter and split into stubbies, or split into the test tubes (the test tubes are pretty small and would require making a starter from them)

For those who wish to streak and want theirs in one of the test tubes under water I can easily make a few up as I haven't done mine yet so 5 or 6 isn't much more work.

for those that are streaking/slanting remember that the oktoberfest is actually a combination of yeasts so will be no good for slants/plates as you will isolate the cultures. A starter would be OK though.

I am definately interested but dont have much that I can swap at present where I can assure purity except for products that I have recultured from the bottle. The last couple samples I obtain did not yeild the results I was looking for. For the platers out there try grown out a plate to do a large colony analysis. Hoops if you remember those super sizes plates I got from livingstone are great for large colony analysis, the field is so big you might consider a game of footy.

i think the easyest way to get these out to each other is in the plastic tubes, split from a starter, that way the starters can be made a week or so before, then for the platers its ready to streak, and for anyone else its a matter of stepping up again into a fresh staarter

Hey guys,
I will be interested to see how this experiment goes. Certainly an interesting idea. My concern is that not all Hbers maintain the same conditions of sanitation. This can result in some interesting brews.
I suggest a great idea would be for each person to buy a new smack pack/tube and on the day split them up under "sterile" conditions (ie. boiled/cooled wort and sanitised transfer tubes/pipettes). That way you would know what you are getting.
If everyone brings along some of those sterile test tubes on the day it will be alot of fun, help each other learn about proper aseptic techniques and most importantly it will ensure that everyone gets what they think they are getting.
Good luck
Darren

Ozbrewer,
I am a paranoid brewer (and an microbiologist) and a days work (brewing) is too much to risk a rogue "yeast". I wouldn't trust my culture techniques let alone anyone elses.
If it comes out of a pack/tube you can be sure of what you are getting.
There are so many variables in brewing. It is always re-assuring knowing that the most important aspect, the yeast is right.

that is my main concern too which is why I would probably use the yeast to make a starter, check it's OK then streak the yeast to select some good colonys for long term storage
