I got super tired of seeing your avatar throwing those fuckin' glasses around in the astrology thread so I fixed it to a .jpg

I've been enjoying this thread since it was started, and I always like experimenting with new flavors. I'll take you up on that rue, if you don't mind.

I'd love to hear how he's isolating and culturing yeast from a single desiccated sample without it getting swamped by whatever yeasts he happens to have naturally in the environment. None of his photos involve isolating a strain e.g. via a streak plate, and all of them seem to involve fermentation in the open air.

I thought the same thing on reading the tweet. Not to mention the yeasts in his flour, which is definitely not ancient.

People don't realize that the vast majority of the yeast in a sourdough starter is on the flour, not in the air. Yeast likes to live on stuff, not just float around.

This confuses me. Where else would the yeast be, if not inside and throughout the dough? Do people think the yeast's farts is the yeast itself?

the common knowledge (which is wrong) is that yeast is just floating around and, for example, starting a sourdough culture is the result of your local airborne yeast inoculating your flour slurry

the actual thing that happens is that flour ships with yeast on it, which inoculates the flour slurry. the amount of yeast in the air is miniscule in comparison.
