    Hi,
    I just made some mead and am wondering if it is possible to wash and reuse the yeast the same as you would with beer yeast? I used Lalvin EC-1118. Anyone done this before?

    Haven't done it, but see no reason why you couldn't.

    I think that's a single strain not a blend (I don't suggest reusing blends as they can change character)

    Sorry can't Google atm using the pc remotely.

    But yes - why not!

    ah, EC1118, the virus-ridden yeast. Therein lies a fascinating tale.
