We offer yeast from around the world, in part from our own explorations, but in large part due to friends, family, brewers, and community scientists. We encourage like minded explorers to donate samples from their own favorite regions.  Explore, backpack, kayak throughout your region and share your memories and unique "Cultures".  Donated samples will go through the same seven step testing before the yeast can be used in services or research.  




Community scientists interested in donating samples may apply here.  Tell us more about your interest and who you are, your region, and the flowers near you.  We will send you a collection kit so that you can be a part of the global community yeast bank.
