Yeast Harvesting, Banking, and Quality Control

Years ago, I started a thread on to share my techniques for banking yeast at home easily and inexpensively using slants. Little did I expect that the thread would go on to become one of the longest and most read threads on the world’s largest homebrew forum. It is still active today. I have since developed and implemented a stringent quality control (QC) program at my meadery in Austin, which has revived my interest in yeast banking and considerably improved my techniques, which I will present in this talk.
