TFFV using yeast cake

Postby Ned » Thu Apr 23, 2020 10:25 am

Having trouble getting yeast (lowans) Just finished a 50 litre batch of TFFV
Can I just reuse the yeast and trub for the next lot or would I need to wash it.
I have a bit of yeast left, but not enough to do 50 litres. Your thoughts.

Aerate the bejesus out of it, add some more nutrients (1/2?) And a little bit of sugar and 30° water, let it multiply for a few hours and add all of you sugar n water upto volume, save the fresh stuff for insurance in case it dosent fire.

Not sure if Andrew has yeast still available, but that would be a good option for you too as I believe you are reasonably local to him?

About 80 grams and I usually put in the 48 litres about 130
