[Tastebridge] brew beer at Noisebridge!

Hey,

I left the yeast in the bottom of the fridge door:
yeast: 3 dry packets of danstar nottingham yeast.
AND
1 liquid vile of dry english ale yeast (wlp0070); the guy at the shop
recommended
it for the sour cherry ale.

I would've started a beer this morning but the stove is disconnected and
Rayce told me we are out of propane for the propane stove.

Hey Will, I was thinking to use a different kind of mate but at this
point we just need to pitch the fucking yeast and finally get a beer
started.
We've delayed this whole thing for so long I can't be too picky.
What else should we put in the mate beer? I was thinking some ginger would
be good.

When do we finally pitch the yeast?
I can haz propane or electricity?

David
