    QQ - depressuize a fermeter to save yeast?

    Hi, After I transfer the beer to kegs from my pressurized fermenter - Do i need to slowly decrease the pressure with a spund valve or is it OK to open the gas port and let the co2 blow out then pour out the yeast for reuse? Will the shock of the sudden depressure harm the yeast? thanks haeffnkr
