10 mls of love!
I plucked a colony of East Coast Ale yeast of my plate the other day and used it to innoculate10 mls of wort starter. After 24 hours at room temp I was showing signs of fermentation and after 3 days there is very active fermentation! Today I am stepping it up to 100 mls of wort. After a couple of more days I hope to get it into my typical 700-800 ml starter. By this coming weekend I should have tons of happy yeast at the ready for my brew day!
