Growing one’s own…

Here is a complete set of my bacterial font. I have used the same bacterial as before but the difference from the previous experiment was that I have grown this under room temperature.

As you can see some of them is not visible enough to see. That could be the case of not enough bacterial on the surface or the temperature wasn’t high enough.

It’s alive!


As we recharge our printer cartridges with fertilizer, we might raise a cold one to the man who became the largest commercial consumer of the organic (eukaryotic micro-organism) yeast, August “Gussie” Anheuser Busch, Jr.  Gussie’s grandfather, Adolphus Busch, came to America from Germany in 1857, settling in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1864, he began working with his father-in-law Eberhard Anheuser at the latter’s brewery, E. Anheuser & Co.  In 1873 the company’s brewing technicians discovered a way to pasteurize beer– allowing for the national distribution of their product. That same year, Busch became a full partner with his father-in-law; they renamed the company the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association in 1879. By 1900, Anheuser-Busch was the world’s largest brewery. The company’s signature brew– lighter than those commonly sold at the time of it’s introduction– Budweiser, ultimately became the world’s best-selling beer.  Gussie ran the empire from 1946 through 1975, during which reign he sustained A-B’s industry leadership, and diversified the company:  he bought the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team.
