If this is a joke......

Yes you can flush it, or spray it on the yard, or wash it and re-use it, or just pitch a new batch on it.

Whatever floats your boat.

Pour it in a jar, drive to Chuck E Cheese, strip to your man-thong, and start slathering it all over your body.

Wash it! Unless you want to pay another $6-7 next time you use that same exact strain. Look for the "yeast washing" instructions somewhere on this site - I think under the yeast section.

There's an image I didn't need.

But yeah, I would wash it and use it for another batch. Or you could just flush it.

Drive to my house and pour my wort onto it. I will get it back to you nice and clean in 2 months.




*man this devolved quick! It may have been my fault for that first reply, but I had just come from post 200 on the "why not to pitch on your yeast cake thread (with which I disagree BTW) and this was the first shiny new thread, lol.*

If you wash the yeast and shown in the other thread, does that mean that you will never have to buy yeast again?
