Meet my friends

I've watched them grow up from single colonies of lager yeast on a petri dish, to 10ml test tubes, to 100ml flasks (seen left), and last night they graduated up to 1000ml yeast starters. Brings a tear to me eye. This weekend I'll watch them unite to ferment 5 gallons of Oktoberfest. I hope I don't wind up with empty nest syndrome.

Next time I go through the process of culturing up yeast from scratch like this I'll post on all of the steps.
