How can I save my yeast? It's in the starter right now.
I'm brewing today and have a starter that I prepared 2 days ago.
My question is, what's the best way to use this starter tonight AND save the yeast to use another time? I have another Erlenmeyer flask ready to go. Should I take a little bit of the current starter and make another starter with it, then bottle it? Do I use the sludge at the bottom of today's starter or the liquid? Help!
How about this, for the next time I try it - if I make a starter 4-6 days before brew day, and 2-3 days before brew day I split it up and make 2 starters out of it, can I save that yeast if I stick it in a bottle and refrigerate it?
