So I was curious what to do with the yeast. I am assuming there will be about 5 gallons of the stuff. Actually I have no idea how much is going to be there.
The last week I have had 80 gallons fermenting. Now I believe it is time to drop the trub out. I was think the first part is just dead stuff and should have a discolor to it. Then the second part is the Good Stuff. What is the proper way to store or it?

Are you talking about trying to save yeast for a later batch?

Any sanitized container that can be sealed up will work. A corny is perfect.

So how much did you end up dumping and how much was good stuff? Didn't you pitch 5 gal or was that for another batch? Sorry, I've been lurking on your threads. Good stuff man!
