I use a very specific procedure of picking up the fermentor and moving it in an orbital fashion until the remaining beer has swirled up the yeast cake into the liquid, then I pour it into a sanatized half gallon mason jar.Amazingly, I seem to have come to the same solution as well. Except I pour it into multiple pint mason jars. I now have a shelf in my fridge of yeast pickled under beer
Is that extraction process patented? Because I've been using it, too, for years.
The only difference is I pour my yeast into tupperware containers. I find that pressure will usually build up in the container and I prefer bulged tupperware to broken glass.
I store the yeast like this for extended periods of time and use it to create starters for brew day.
