I would like to reuse the ale yeast that I just used for an Ale. Primary only and about to bottle. So, the question is - Can I rack it off then just pour a fresh new batch of wart right back into the same carboy and yeast? (First time use on this yeast.)
If no - So, I pour the yeast into a container, it seperates, I pour off the clear/top layer and left w/2 bottom layers. The yeast will be on top but how would one get the yeast off the sedimentary bottom?

Yes you can just pour you fresh wort on the yeast cake. Get ready for a fun but violent fermentation.
