There is absolutely no need to rack off of the yeast bed. Should you decide to to reuse the
cake just make sure you carbon dioxide flush the racking vessel and then seal the top with an
airlock. A pel...

Mine is a sour solera and I do not replenish my Sacc yeast at this point so I don't aerate. Now
if it is getting too sour I will aerate my wort and pre-ferment in a standard bucket with Sacc

U can use a digital refractometer accurately (with a correction equation)

I guess if you utilize the same conical as the secondary you could run into the issue you
mentioned. In that case a small amount of air will be bubbled through the beer and into the
headspace. The car...
