It looks like you streaked several times from the same sample of yeast, and that there was a bit too much liquid in each streak (they resemble puddles). The liquid should be nearly invisible on your when applied to the plate. Also the plate surface should be a bit dry, so liquid is absorbed quickly. The streaking technique is important too: the plate in the ...

"Does it contain the same yeast strain as heffe, or not?" It's quite possibly the same strain BUT not necessarily the strain you're looking for (Weihenstephan's Hefe yeast). Bottle conditioning for one or both (or neither) of these beers may be conducted with different yeast strains than the primary (from which all of the characteristic hefe flavor ...

However, this is a function not only of the yeast, but also of the date of manufacture, the viability/vitality of the yeast and the ...

Monoammonium phosphate and diammonium phosphate contain all the same chemical compounds (phosphate ions, ammonium ions, and hydrogen ions), the major difference is that MAP has a second hydrogen in place of the ammonium. So, if you buy food grade stuff, it should be totally safe to consume, however, pH is determined by those hydrogen ions, so your wine may ...
