Kinky,could i split this slurry into 2 equal amounts to add to 2 differant batches (1 tomorrow and 1 on saturday) or should i use the whole lot seeing as tho this is the first reuse of the slurry. And then wait till next time round before splitting it up and storing and making starters.
this is an area of brewing i need to brush up on as ive been forking out to many $$ on yeast lately
You will be fine splitting the slurry into 2 halves - in fact I would recommend against pitching the whole yeast cake into the next brew, unless you want to see what yeast looks like sprayed all over your ceiling (yes, this happened to me with 1 cup of Wyeast 1056 slurry).
I've read numerous times that a half cup of slurry is plenty to repitch, provided it is not stored for ages before repitching.
