AMAZING, sports fans ! I am making homebrew beer for the first time in about 12 years. I use proper barley malt grain, whole hops-the whole real ale thang.
I used to use yeast from Guinness bottles, but then they stopped making the bottle conditioned stuff, may the dung of a thousand camels descend into their vats.
BUT….12 years ago I bottled some beer with this yeast still in it as a sediment. Last week I drank the beer, and poured the sediment into a malt extract solution. IT WORKED!!
It’s alive, Igor, and ready to ferment my beer again!!.
Mr Guinness, if you’re reading this, I hope you’re crying into the insipid muck you claim to be stout. I’VE GOT YOUR YEAST HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
