Im just wondering how can I make my own and has anyone tried it and is it worth it and what's the shelf life or fridge life

It is so inexpensive to buy... so any real reason for this?

If it is a cost thing you could wash your yeast from previous batches and re-use.

Money is not a issue just wanting to experiment and how do I wash the yeast

You tube actually has some good vids on that topic.

If your going to do it I would start with a better yeast to make it worth your while :handgestures-thumbupleft:
