I did a minimal search (I typed in "beer with cider yeast" and "Beer cider yeast" and "Beer Cider") and all I seem to find is using beer yeasts in cider.
I even looked at White Labs website at their WLP775 English Cider Yeast and there is just a note about it being used in big beers.
My question is:
I've made 5 gallons of cider (plain and simple stuff) its sitting right now in the primary, I'm getting ready to rack over to secondary to age/clear and I would love to re-use the yeast cake. I'm not a huge Cider/apfelwein fan and 5 gallons will last a while so I really don't want to make another cider - anyone try a cider yeast in a beer before?
Obviously It's going to dry it out, but there are ways of combating dryness in beer that are quite easy in my opinion. I know it will make a drinkable beer (it may or may not make my favourite beer but it will be drinkable) but has anyone tried this, or thought about this or have any input?
