Starter With Reused Yeast-Trub
« on: October 07, 2011, 12:23:35 PM »
I just put some 2112 reused yeast in a starter on my stir plate.  I seem to have some hop leaves in there from the last brew.  More than normal.  What's the best route on this?  Just let it roar for the next 10 hours, decant and pitch or should I take it off, let it settle and transfer at high Krausen to a jug to try to leave the trub behind?

Let it roar.  The trub shouldn't hurt anything and mucking around with it is just going to increase the chance of contamination.

My thoughts as well.  Good to have some backup!  A toast of my very sweet Red Ale to you!   ;D
