Can you reuse the yeast cake from a previous batch, just as you would while making beer? I know you can only do this a few times (4 generations) but my LHBS is far enough away that the $0.70 yeast would cost me $10 in gas..

on a side note, edWort wasn't kidding when he said make another batch quickly , and I do thank you for that advice sir!

Thanks in advance for any help!

I've done it, but only once because I was lazy. I mean, it cost $0.79 a packet.

It turned out OK, but I still wash and sanitize bottles between batches.
