all right, quick question. so i rack off from the primary ---> secondary, taking precautions not to suck up any trub, and then pour what's left over into a jar?
i guess my question is where you draw the line between 'trub' and 'reusable yeast'? does that trub harbor yeast within it? and storing methods aside, will the yeast only be good for a similar style of beer?
edit: also i'd just like to rant about how pissed i am at myself for buying a goose island reserve 4-pack for $12, completely forgetting i have a cold and can't taste a damn thing.
