Doing 10 gal of Altbier using Imperial's Kaiser for fermentation. When I did the yeast build it formed an humongous krausen. I have had a couple of blow offs using my SS conical and thought what if I could harvest some of the blow off yeast instead of killing it in StarSan. So I put together an erlenmeyer flask with a carboy cap. The blow of tube drains the blown off yeast into some boiled water and a disc hepa filter allows CO2 out but no contaminated air in. What are the odds the yeast will survive in the sanitized water? Giving it a try to see what happens.
