Well the more I thought about it the more it makes sense. It only adds one step to the process and gives you a bunch of fresh new babies to make beer rather than a cup of old guys.

Yeah, that is my thinking.  I am not saying I have science to back it up, but like Denny says try it and see what works for you.  I find the lagers require a bit more than the ales, but the lagers are starting to support a bit less repitch thanI was doing.  Taste and less esters and phenols are what I am seeing.

and probably why this batch tastes not up to par. poor hop taste and smell ,and horrible off taste from stressed out yeast. down the drain with this one!

and the good news is, the batch i made last weekend by using 1/3 cup of the slurry and building a yeast starter came out perfect. its finished at 1.010 and hops and malt shinning bright!
