I am new to home brewing and have brewed several NB extract kits, and in fact, just finished capping a Irish Red Ale kit. I have been craft distilling for several years now, which prompts this question. In distilling and preparing a new mash, it is very common to take the yeast bed (trub) from the batch prior and use it in the next batch of mash. In addition to saving money by not having to buy yeast, many believe it actually the quality of the new batch of mast. I will bottle a NB Mile Ale next week, and are wondering the effect of using the yeast bed for a new batch. Do home brewers ever use the yeast bed after racking to start a new batch of wort?
