Reviving a yeast cake

(1/3) > >>

tesla_hv:
I've had a jar of yeast that I saved from the yeast cake of a previous brew about 3 months ago.  It is probably on the order of 8 ounces of slurry.  How do I revive it if I want to use it this weekend to brew?

Kaiser:
Take about a tsp worth and step it up in a starter.

I've got a similar amount of yeast cake saved in a mason jar.  Couldn't I just take a few tsp and make a regular 2 quart starter?  Or is it pretty necessary to step it up?

what size steps do you recommend  ;)

babalu87:
I treat the slurry a little like a smack pack or tube

A tablespoon or two of the slurry and a 2 liter starter.
I'll call that a 2 liter starter and go from there.
