  • 2bbl brewhouse

    I am moving from home brewer to brewery. I have three 2bbl fermenters. I want to reuse my yeast. How should I go about collecting and how much?

    1) I am assuming I drop trub on fifth day? Then a few days later to collect maybe a gallon of residual trub/yeast at seven days?

    If you only have 3 fermenters I don't think reusing yeast is a feasible option. You would want to harvest the yeast and then re-pitch it within 48 hours. I would recommend using dry yeast, with a new brick for each batch. This is what we do on our 7bbl system with 7 fermenters. This also allows you to use more than one strain of yeast, which is very important in my opinion.

      You're small enough to where you can create your own yeast bank and prop for each brew. That's what we do. Get a stir plate and you can buy homebrew packs of yeast and prop them up to the pitch rate you need pretty easily.
