I'm still a newbie by most standards, I've got a quick question. I've brewed a Hoegaarden Clone, using WYEAST. So far from tasting the hydrometer samples, it's excellent already - great news. I have to import WYEAST to get it to NZ, and that is very, very expensive (almost 1/2 the cost of the brew). I'm thinking of going straight into another brew when I bottle it. As I do 2 stage fermentation, I could, if it would work, prep the wort before bottling, then when it's cool, bottle and pitch the dregs into the new brew.
Would this work?
I've read about yeast washing etc etc, but if I'm doing it back to back, then is it really worth it?
