I have already read the yeast washing thread...
I will be brewing a Porter within a few days - so here is my question: I made a AHS Holiday Ale about a month or so back, then pitched a Williams Holiday Ale right on the yeast cake from the AHS as it what White Labs and worked real good. There was a bit of a delay (26 hours or so), but fermentation started fine and actually fermented longer and more solidly than the first batch(?) Today I racked the second Holiday Ale and have a Porter in the works a few days from now. I could not bring myself to pour that good yeast cake down the drain, so I quickly sanitized a mason jar in StarSan for about 10 minutes and poured the trub right into that - then sealed with aluminum foil and placed in the beer fridge. My thoughts are to use it on the Porter in a few days.
Anything stand out wrong with this for the experts?
Yes, I am a noob to re-using yeast - just need to know if this direction will work fine or if I need to grab another pack of yeast.
