Hey, I just racked from primary to secondary and I decided to harvest some yeast from the bottom. However, I realize that there is hop sediment sitting down there, and now in the jar with the yeast. Is this yeast still good, I have about 8 oz of sludge in the jar. Is this sludge unsuable because i took it from the primary instead of the secondary or is it still good? Can I pitch this stuff after making a starter out of it?
I guess basically what I'm wondering is: I just put some of the trub from the bottom of my primary into a sanitized jar and then stuck it in my fridge. Is this stuff full of the yeast I can reuse next time? How can I use this again?
