How many strains of yeast does this crowd keep around the house? I have started to save and wash the yeast cake from my past two brews. I end up with 4 jars of each. I am ending up taking up quite a bit of space in the refrigerator.
In my opinion, one of the cool things of being a homebrewer is being able to use as many different strains as I would like. Economics become more important to bigger brewers and they may need to limit production to one or two strains. But this is my hobby, not my job!
I need to give away some of the yeast to brewing friends. But I think my answer to my question is 1. One house strain to keep and have available all the time. The next question is which house strain?
