yeast viability
« on: July 20, 2013, 09:52:13 am »
I kegged my beer last week and didn't get around to cleaning the fermentor.
Is it possible to save the yeast that is left at this late date?
It's been at the bottom of a refrigerated (50*) 15 gal keg for 8 days.

Maybe....try harvesting some and making a starter with it to see.
