Default How do you reuse yeast?

How do you reuse yeast? Does it have to be a certain type of yeast? Dry vs liquid? Any instructions or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

The link above is great for most things but I also wash yeast in order to get more yeast to save. As usual, always make a starter.

easiest way to reuse yeast is to make a small to regular beer, then keg it while you're cooking up a bigger beer that uses the same yeast. when you finish cooking up that beer and cool it, just put your new wort into that yeasty bucket and airlock it. otherwise, wash it with the instructions up there ^^^^
