    In fact isn't it in the Mythbuster thread? If not it should be

    We just grab enough of the trub to get the next brew going, or do Beer-on-Beer like Simple said. .... the dead yeast is actually fine as it acts as a nutrient for the live ones once new wort(food) is added.

    I personally feel that being anal about "grain particles" is overkill
    I read from the almighty Google that you should only reuse liquid yeast and not dry yeast.

    Is that true?!

    100% False, I opened a nice IPA that I brewed some time back with a 3rd reuse of US-05. Delicious it was I tell you

    That same yeast is busy on it's 4th ferment. Yeast are you buddies, look after them and feed them well

    No, they say that so that you buy more yeast.

    False ... I've only ever used dry yeast and i re-use many times over

    What's the best strategy for reusing yeast?

    Must I wash it first or straight up use the trube from my previous batch?

    Does it matter how long I wait in between batches for yeast reuse?

    Does it matter if I am using yeast from from a different beer type. For example if I brew Amber Ale can I reuse the yeast to brew a Weiss provided they require the same strain.

    I've mentioned before, I just swirl up the yeast cake in the fermenter and dump it into a sterile container and into the fridge. I've reused the same US-05 on 3 different styles of ale. My W34/70 was in the fridge for about three weeks in between brews, it got dumped into my Light Lager yesterday and was bubbling up a storm within 4 hours.

    Or rather top harvest on the second or so day of fermentation.
    You will get a nice collection of healthy live yeast with almost nothing else (no trub or any other crap).

    Since I started to do this I don't bother with the dregs after kegging anymore.

    Plenty of videos inlined showing how to top harvest
