I was going to brew the DR in a couple days and then afterward, the West Coast…for the first time for both. I think I want to try and wash the yeast from the DR and use it for the West Coast, as I have read that you should not just pour the new brew onto the yeast cake. (Esp. considering the amount of fermentables and hops for both.) I have never washed the yeast, nor poured a new batch on the yeast cake.
If I do wash the yeast (or could I just get away with taking say, a mason jar of the slurry) do I need to use the yeast that came with the West Coast too?
Or, should I just throw caution to the wind and pour the WC on top of the yeast cake for the Dead Ringer?
Or, do I just use my yeast (1 pack of dry, as I don’t like to ship liquid in the summer)
Any and all thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
