Default Dregs question

Now I want to confirm. Can the dregs and muck at the bottom of my fermentor bucket be reused for its yeast if so what is the procedure?

Yep. It's called yeast washing. See here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f13/yeas...strated-41768/

+1 what Palefire said. I've used washed yeast for the last seven or eight batches of All Grain. I have about two dozen pints and half pints of various yeasts in the fridge.

It works for me, read the Yeast Washing thread, there's a lot of great information there. Good Luck.

I've washed some of the more expensive liquid yeasts per the thread here. I've also just dumped a new brew right on the trub of an IPA with safale 05 just because I wanted to see how it would turn out/ react.

No problems with either (yet). :P

And technique #3 is: sieve the big chunks out and re-use the yeast.
