Default Using the yeast sediment.

I read on the internet that large brewers sell their yeast sediment to be used in animal feed. I looked further on the subject apparently the yeast contains alot of high quailty protien and very very nutritious. I want to use the yeast myself as a food source instead of tipping it out (I hate wasting stuff, waste not want not). How to get the taste of hops out of the yeast sediment? I'm thinking if I can do this, I will mix it in with ground beef and BBQ it.

Anyone else been thinking along these lines?

In the "German Wheat Beers" book I read that more than 30g of yeast per day might be bad for you. I have to reread this when I'm home tonight.

But yes, there is animal feed use of yeast sediment.

Sounds kind of gross. Mix it with the dog's food, if he dies in a week, don't eat it yourself.

I received my copy of this book yesterday and it does say that, or something very close to it (I was trying to read it cover to cover last night...failed). Seems like the yeast sediment from a pint or two a day had lots of good nutrients and could be good for the skin(?), but mixing it with hamburger just sounds like a not good idea to me.

Go for it. Just use the sediment from the secondary, it will have less hops in it. Try a sample first, just dip some from the sediment. Try a web search for "brewers yeast recipe"?

I suspect you would overload on certain B vitamins (B1 & B12) quickly. Also, even if you can get the hops out, yeast is still rather bitter. Using yeast as a dietary suppliment, the recommended amount is 15 grams a day. A packet of dried yeast is 11-12 grams, for comparison.

I compost mine along with the hops & spent grain.

I wouldn't mind a recipe for vegimite. That stuff is expensive now, around $5-$10 a jar. On another planet, there are probably aliens who brew beer just so they can eat the yeast and wondering if the leftover beer can be used for anything.

Imperial Walker, I think it's pretty much just yeast, it's refered to as a yeast spread. It's very nice but very salty. I wouldn't mind making my own and cutting out the salt to make it healthier.
