Repitching question
« on: April 22, 2014, 05:20:33 PM »
Just did an oyster stout using White labs london ale yeast. think I could use the yeast again for something like a pale ale or ESB? will the oatstout oysters carry over?

That's probably one I would NOT repitch.  I don't have any experience with oysters, but I just would not risk it. Pale Ale with a hint of oyster does not sound good, unless of course, you're eating it with oysters and you probably wouldn't notice.

I say go for it. Any brininess or flavor (which should be mild if you have good oysters) will be quite dilute once pitched to a new full batch. Plus, the zinc in the oysters is a good yeast nutrient.
