I used a 1 liter plastic soda bottle full of iodophor solution to catch my blowoff tube for this batch of beer I've got fermenting. At the bottom of that bottle is a nice perfect looking bunch of yeast. I am tempted to harvest this stuff, but I wonder if the iodophor has hurt the yeast at all.

Any opinions? To harvest or not to harvest from an iodophor solution?
