I have a Pliny clone about 5 days into fermentation with US05, and am in the planning stages for a pumpkin ale that I want to use US05 in also....Being cheap and lazy I would like to harvest the slurry from the Pliny and repitch into the Pumpkin ale, which is a relatively low 24 IBU/1.057 OG brew. Bad idea? Pliny being too high in both IBU and ABV to repitch?
I will admit I don't "wash" yeast, and have never wanted to.
Basically my question is should I just use a fresh pack of US05? or has someone debunked this and repitched similarly with no horrible outcome?
yeast is a terrible thing to waste
