I have two kits I plan to do in sequence over the next little while--a Festa Brew brown ale, and a Festa Brew double oatmeal stout. If you're not familiar with these kits a few details can be found at:
Magnotta::Festa Brew::Search Result
Anyway, I wanted to try these kits with liquid yeast so picked up a pack of Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale. I was told I could "split" the pack between the two kits (i.e. use half now with whichever kit I do first and keep half refrigerated for a week or so until I start the next one), or do the two in sequence, i.e. start the brown ale now then capture the yeast when fermentation is complete and re-use it for the stout.
Which of these two options is the best idea? Or...should I have gotten a different liquid yeast for the brown ale (perhaps the Wyeast 1028 London Ale or 1056 American Ale)?
