I am trying out malt extract. I believe brew places carry this. We
use this substance in the micro lab where I work, when we grow
yeast cultures in vitro. I don't know, though, if it will make the
yeast last longer or only grow more quickly. Maybe a little of each.
In the DIY CO2 setup, I've just started the first batch with malt
extract a week ago, so can't give a report, except that it is bubbling
far more than any other culture I've started before.
