    Reusing Coopers Session Ale Yeast

    Must admit when I started brewing I wasn't aware of all these additional steps and a lot of the process gets lost in brewer jargon. But it's also a hobby that evolves quite easily from buying a kit n a kilo to crushing your own grain and making your own yeast and growing your own hops .. just waiting for the people who step it further and grow there own grain. 🤣

    Reusing Coopers Session Ale Yeast

    Iv used slurry around 8 times now with zero issues but see where you are coming from. With some annual leave now I think i will look into makings my own starters. Does it have to be with a beaker or do other jars work the same ?

    Reusing Coopers Session Ale Yeast

    Ok so from people's experiences from using the re activated yeast how does it hold up Vs say US-05 ? Can you get more then one brew out of it by pitching it's slurry?

    Yeah sweet might give it a try. Cheers for the response. Now to search for the correct method
  10. So iv noticed people re hydrate and re use coopers pale ale yeast from the bottom of the bottle but has anyone done it with the session ale ? Is it the same strain ? Just curious cause iv got a few stubbies here.

    Larger then normal trub

    Cheers for the replies, the latest 11 L batch I did I noticed I had trub above the tap .. pitching a yeast slurry prob didn't help. I was doing exactly the same as you wort hog it's good to pick up these little tips n tricks.cheers.

    RDWHAHB - What Are You Drinking in 2018?

    Tried one of my modified Hop Gobblers ... what I perceived as a strong Smokey flavour has gone and what iv got now is bloody delicious. The sample I took when I poured it from the FV was totally different from what's in the bottle even after 5 days. Was going to try Palm these off but won't now. The EKG and Fuggles combination is a winner. But next time I'l stick to the recommended levels of choc malt as the recipe.

    Larger then normal trub

    Iv been chilling then transferring. Does a lot of the trub drop in the cube over night ? Or you recommend leaving longer ? Will be the next thing I pick up a few cubes.
