    Also keep in mind that this poster was designed to be presented to a low level college Biology Class, and so a lot of the more technical aspects have been simplified or dumbed down to make it easier...
  7. Diastaticus Strains

    Based on my research, here are the conclusions that i have come to about the precise mechanics of Diastaticus Infection:

    There are multiple different strains of Diastaticus Yeast out there, and...
  8. ABE Watchdog

    We also have had great success with it, but for us, we also use it to carbonate our beer, it was way cheaper than the Meheen Tank manager system, and our sensor cord/Co2 hose are long enough to reach...
  9. Preliminary Data Analysis and Low Cost Assay for Diastaticus Detection

    We are still running testing on our isolated strains of diastaticus, but one of the first, and more terrifying things we have found from our preliminary analysis is that this strain of Diastaticus...

  15. Media Vs PCR

    @Buffalo, i am well aware of the time restrictions of using media, i was only looking at it out of desperation, as the one lab i would trust to run PCR and give a correct result had thier...
  16. PCR Assay

    Yeast Managment Protocols

    We store our yeast in converted half barrel brinks.

    We usually try to crash pretty hard (around 35F) 1-2 days before collection

    As of right now we do not do any yeast acid washing or a wash...
