comment Harvesting yeast
I would think you could easily get dry yeast mailed to you. Nottingham is great stuff, as are the 2 fermentis lager yeasts I've tried!

comment My cooled wort got contaminated by tap water. What are the primary consequences of re-boiling?
Unless your tap water is terrible for some reason, I would have just added some DME to compensate for the dilution and left it at that, without re-boiling. I don't any more, but I used to top up carboys with plain un-boiled tap water, and I don't think any harm came from it. Come to think of it, I used to make batches from wort-in-a-bag kits mixed with plain old tap water. They were more than 50% tap water by volume, and they were great.

That's zany, man! Dump it because it might be contaminated!? He's already done most of the work. He can dump it after fermentation if it seems bad, but advising him to dump it now is horrible advise!
