So I was wondering what happens when I pour my trub down the drain, do you think the yeast is keeping my spetic tank nice and clean?? Or is it going to mix and turn into a Poo Monster?

I would try a sample from the septic. Make sure to take OG readings and adjust for temperature....

Been using regular bakers yeast for more than 10 years in my septic system and when I had it cleaned out recently, the technician commented on how clean it actually was.

I now dump my all my slurry down the commode and as far as I can tell, no problems. I did notice a few deer staggering around behind the house in the woods, but paid it no mind.

Salute!

Don't use yeast from your septic tank. It'll make your beer taste like $hit.

I was thinking it has the same benefit. Keeps the biological activity going.

Especially if you feed it regularly. (Couldn't resist and I haven't even started drinking yet.)
