I love WLP001.

I've got a quick question about WLP 400. Rather than start a whole new thread....

It's been hot here in Oregon for the past week (up until yesterday). I ferment in my apartment's outdoor utility closet. Saturday evening the ambient temperature in the closet was 88* at 10PM, so I can only assume it was probably up into the 90's earlier in the day. I'm planning on washing my yeast this evening, but I don't know if it's worth it. The super high fermentation temps will adversley affect my current brew, but will the washed yeast continue to make beer that tastes like it was fermented at 90*?

On the other hand, I look forward to lagering this winter

I went to make a starter tonight with my washed yeast. I obviously got a substantial bit of trub when I did this. Now, I got big bits of trub floating around in my starter. Am I OK to use the starter or do I need to ditch it? Doesn't seem too different than pitching on top of an old yeast cake to me......


Thanks,

The trub will be fine. If you washed well there won't be enough to change the flavor of your brew.

Man I love washing and reusing yeast. I have had the same yeast for 6 batches now and just dumped it as spent. That is over a year and 78ish gallons of beer later from one $6 vial of WLP001.

Inspired by you guys I have decided to harvest some yeast myself. I think I got more trub than I want in these using the pour method, but oh well this is my first attempt. I think I'll get one of those mini auto-siphons to make this easier.

This is a W1056. What do you guys think?

very nice! Huge amounts of yeast in those jars! I have washed yeast and it is definitely worth it. I haven't bought yeast in 3 months (50 gallons or so).

10 gallon batch of what was suppose to be the centennial blonde. I think it turned out darker than the guidelines for a blond though.
