Have to store strains?
    #4302663 - 06/16/05 07:48 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

how to store strains/species? i have been reading about slants, but they have to be grown "out" every 6 months or so to make new ones. how long can spores survive in a sealed bag or something like that?

In spore print or syringe form, you can store strains almost indefinitely. A print lasting 10+ years and a syringe making it 3+ is not unheard of around here. You don't need to grow them out just for the sake of it, the original will last quite awhile as mentioned. The refrigerator seems to be the best place to store spores. Live cultures can be stored in distilled water within slants/vacuutainers (sp?) for long periods of time as well.

If you don't want your milk to spoil. Other than that, no. It just needs a cool place to hibernate. It's not as picky about temps when hibernating.
