You can get the tubes at I use the 12 ml autoclaveable vials.

The distilled water method sounds interesting. I also heard about using 0.9% NaCl solution for yeast storage.

Where do you get your tubes at?
I'm a Ph.D. student in microbiology, so I get them at work.  I buy office supplies for the lab in exchange for tubes/glassware/etc.

does that work for any size starter? would you get about the same amount from 100mls from a 2L starter and a 4L starter?

The cell density in a 2 L starter and a 4 L starter probably won't be the same, but from a practical perspective, I don't really care if I'm collecting 20 billion cells or 30 billion - I'm going to be building it up again anyway.
