Default Reuse of yeast

If use say a Safale 4 yeast on a stout and wash to reuse on pale ale or something will there be any adverse effects to the yeast seeing as used it on a dark beer the first time?

No. Just wash and reuse however you want.

Ditto that. There seems to be some folk lore floating around about that type of thing, but I've never had a problem with washed yeast, and I haven't heard of any actual problems with it. Viability will drop over time. Some say use it in one week, some say two. Mr. Matly says the viability drops 1.8% per day. Going to do some cell counts next weekend to see how my yeast are doing and write a blog post about it.

Go for it.. I washed wlp004 from sweet stout last month.. it was even simpler since trub is darker than usual and it was easy to differentiate it from yeast.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
