Really it just isn't as viable as sugar, so I doubt many have used it. It will just ferment out
and have a negligible impact on taste.

Pasturization in bottle is a good guess.My money is on whirlpooling the yeast/sediment out.Both
are cheap at the commercial level...Pasteurization in the bottle leads to sediment which is

Doing 3 in a 5 now, but that's with ale yeast... my next washed/left over yeast is from a hefe
