Bear with me guys/girls, I've searched and read alot of threads about this...but I still gotta ask. I'm starting my brewing career with LME/DME kits, Munton's is the brand I believe. My first batch is a Amber Ale that is currently in the primary. I now want to brew a Porter after racking the Amber to the secondary. My questions are: does this type of brewing create a yeast cake? If so can I use this yeast cake with the Porter. BTW, I was going to follow the 1-2-3 method of fementation, settling, and conditioning eventhough the packaged directions say to bottle after 7-10 days of fementing. Acceptable? Or is that just for more "in-depth" brewing with grains and such. PHEW! Thanks for your patience!
