What got me started Review by Orson

I've been using this kit for almost a year now, and it's paid for itself in saved yeast cost. All the components are good enough, and can be upgraded if the wear out or break. I have a freezer already and bought a used microscope for not too much.

The price is good for what you get Review by McDermot

The kit has all useful stuff at a good price. I picked up a used microscope off ebay. You can buy additional items as you need them, but this has what you need for the most part.

I want to reuse yeast and experiment with harvesting the most or least flocculant and see how I can alter a strain. This kit had a lot of what I needed, and I bought the other stuff as I needed it. I bought a microscope off ebay. Nothing fancy, just the bare bones to culture yeast.

A reasonable start Review by Revis

This requires science, so you will want a microscope and additional equipment. You will want to pick up more Agar, and some slants. Plus you potentially need a freezer if storing cultures long term. And all the prep materials that needs. Just like brewing is a hobby, so is growing yeast :-)

For the Pressure cooker, get a big one, so you can prepare a years worth of starters at one time.
