I'm divorced, so I only have to answer to my alter ego!

I actually had no idea that Blue Moon had dregs you can harvest in it! I'll have to try it, as well!

Careful about using dregs from a beer like blue moon. It may already be several sessions old and could experience autolysis. Maybe make a small starter batch size of generic brew on the counter and check for it before you pitch into your wort. Commercial yeast is not homebrew yeast.

Just sayin.

I have been messing with this yeast for about 2 to 1.5 weeks and every time I pitch it into a larger starter it kicks up real well but i shall see it is just a 5 gallon batch. I am willing to risk it.
Bobby I will make sure she know you said it was OK.

I got no problems with my wife, we both like beer but she likes expensive vodka better, she gets her vodka, I get my beer, my hobby keeps me out of her hair and we all live in peaceful bliss......

I am glad my wife doesn't like beer. It goes way to fast now I can't imagine if we were both drinking it. She does let my buy what I like so it's win win for me......

I do the same thing!, I would feel bad but honestly it's for the good of humanity
