Yeast Washing Workshop

Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

On WEDNESDAY, November 7, I will be demonstrating (and hopefully teaching) how to wash yeast.

For those of you who aren't familiar with yeast washing, it is a very useful cost-cutting strategy which consists of "harvesting" yeast slurry from a fermentor to be stored and used on a new batch of beer at a later date. 

This is a very easy and straight forward process, yet there are a number of small details that deserve attention, allowing for a seamless and healthy transition from carboy to mason jar. 

I brewed a Tricerahops IPA on October 17th, which should be ready to rack into secondary by this date, November 7th. The yeast that I will be washing in this demonstration will be Wyeast 1968 London ESB Ale. 

If you are interested in coming to see the demonstration, please click the 'attend button on the bottom so i know how many copies of info sheets to bring.

Feel free to message Nick Dolan with any questions!
