It's probably illogical, but I don't think I'd want denatured alcohol anywhere near my beerware. Which seems irrational on closer observation, given that it probably would burn off completely.

The Southern Cross greeted me this morning.If I were not envious of your location before, I am now!
Also make sure you're EXTREMELY clean/sanitary with the whole process. Sanitize the bottle before opening, sanitize the bottle opener, don't let the bottle sit open any longer than absolutely needed, etc. You're culturing up what may be a few yeast cells and a few cells of contaminating yeast/bacteria will be cultured up along with them.Indeed. If you have the equipment to work with solid media, it might be worth plating and isolation streaking after a short revival time. Then you can try to pick the isolated yeast colonies separate from any obviously contaminating bacteria.
Somehow, that sounds much more insulting than "Indian Summer" does.It's England again except now, the flowers are starting to come up a month early for some, two months for others. I guess once they bloom, it will dump snow, freeze and then kill off spring.
We call that an "Indian Spring"!
Yeah, my water is extremely hard. Tastes a bit like drywall, too.You're probably right....
Star-San solutions need replaced when a precipitate forms, right? My sanitizer spray bottle has white particles in the bottom now. What extends its life? Refrigeration, protection from light?
My StarSan solutions seem to last just about forever. The primary thing I've heard causing premature precipitate is using water with too many minerals in it to mix your solution. Is your water pretty hard? Maybe try mixing up your next batch with store bought water?
To be fair, the earliest times are relatively empty. It's required for a number of majors, runs both semesters, and we have 15 sections of it this semester. For some reason fall enrollment tends to be lighter; we only had 12 sections last semester.Yep, Purdue. Non-majors micro lab.(I teach a 7:30am lab, groan)
Purdue? I remember those 7:30s fondly.
Well, I remember them, anyway.
Actually, I don't remember some of them.
I'm sure at least a few of the students are sleeping. Heck, I'd rather still be sleeping then, too.
A lab at 7:30AM ?! And students actually signed up for it? Wow, must be a required class that is only available once a year.
