So save my current large yeast, then take a small portion of that and do a starter? I figure I probably have 2 quarts of clean yeast left after fermentation is done. I could wash that then use portions.. Gotcha.
Do you think that is how they do it? I saw on modern marvels the guys was spooning it from a freakin bucket. Must have been 4 Gallons of yeast!
