Photos from Yeast Wrangling

I’m finally getting around to sending Bootleg Biology some of the yeast samples I’ve collected this past year or so. You’d think a guy could have gotten around to slapping some mixed cultures on a few slants months ago but… 

Countries of origin: China, Thailand, and the good ole U.S.

Here are some photos. I’ll elaborate on the brilliance of  “my” hodgepodge of methods in another post soon.

I found a bumble bee on these flowers, he donated some yeast.

Gotcha. Xining, China

I gathered some leafy stuff from the trail down to this beach in Thailand

I rounded up a few bees from this haven in Cimarron, Colorado

That’s all for this one. I’m still refining and experimenting with different methods of collecting. I should have some batches done with wild stuff in the next month or two.
