yeast re-use

redzim:
any one see a problem re-using W-34/70 from a Bo-Pils that was 1.058, to a German Pils that is going to only be around 1.050?   I ask because a couple years ago I reused US-05 from a 1.066 IPA in a 1.045 brown ale....  major off flavors etc occurred, AFAIK because of the yeast dropping in gravity so much.... I am assuming a 1.058 to 1.050 drop is not such a big deal?

i don't think you will have much problem.

denny:
No problem.  I don't know where the idea that you always have to go up in gravity came from.

I think it is simply a practice to go up in gravity and may have gotten misconstrued as a rule?

Yeah, that's what I'd guess.
