I am trying to pitch onto a yeast cake for a second batch of beer. So far I have. . . brewed a Halcyon wheat, let it settle, pitched a starter of 1450 and let it ferment. I crashed cooled and am thinking of racking it off to my keg and dropping a batch of Denny’s Rye Smile on top of the cake.
Because I’ve racked the Halcyon before pitching is there any need to wash the yeast cake before I pitch the Rye Smile on top? I’ve been cold-pitching and plan on doing the same with the cake (dropping 65o wort onto a 45o or so cake).
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
