Just wondering has anyone ever tried to take dormant yeast off of a beer.
I have done this and put it into a food saver bag and pulse vac and sealed it. I have used washed yeast before, but i didn't wash this just poured it from carboy to bag and sealed it. Put it in my secondary fridge which has no light emitting into it.
This came off a cream ale which is lightly hopped and the og was around 1.052.
When making my next batch I will take wort off that and put it in a mason jar and cool it down and pitch this into it and replace the lid quick starter style. So by the end of the process, it should be like a slap pack. Doesnt hurt to try right?
I will do 2.5 gallon batches one with new yeast from the store, one with this yeast. I will keep you posted.
