Default Real quick yeast recycling question...

Quick question....

I've got a Pils in secondary lagering right now and I saved a pint jar of the yeast, trub and all and stuck it in the fridge. (Wyeast 2000) I've done yeast washing before, but I really did not have the time. I sanitized the jar in the oven for an hour at 350 and the lid with Starsan.

I want to brew a batch of Schwarzbier when I get home. When I have the chance to brew next, it will have been in the fridge about 3 weeks.

Think the yeast will still be good?

Yes, but I would make a starter for any traditional black lager, you want to have plenty of healthy yeast.
Newer, better, more streamlined sig as per the forum police.
