I think ill break the internet again tonight... though its a BIAB, it wont be nearly as interesting.
Current status, laying in bed with the three year old waiting for his little eyes to shut. 12 lbs of pale malt measured into a paper bag. Lager yeast spinning on the plate, k-97 still happy in the fridge. Kettle is cleaned and the false bottom is locked in place. Full pack of cigarettes, two monster rehab drinks in the fridge, leftover pizza waiting for fourth meal. Lets do this
Ouch! I only reuse the expensive yeasts (White Labs, Wyeast). I do feel your pain. Mine has been side-glancing me ever since the mini fridge died and I put my yeast/hop supply in the main refrigerator.
Winning recipe. Im going to BIAB this one im the driveway tonight. 57 degrees, a nice sweat shirt brew night. Right after i keg some why so creepy ipa. Very excited for tonight. Ive been thinking about it all week
SWMBO has chosen.
Given the choice between jars of yeast in the fridge and spending money on new yeast each time, the choice is - keep that stuff out of the fridge!
It was interesting to know I could save and successfully reuse yeast, but now I know I will be using good fresh yeast every brew .
