The Beerdroid makes havesting yeast so easy. After kegging or bottling remove tap and drain plug and place a clean sanitised jar underneath. (If you don’t have something to put the jar on you may need someone to hold it for you).

Tilt the Beerdroid forward using the lifting areas and drain the yeast slurry into the jar. (You may need to add some boiled then cooled water to rinse a bit out). Put the jar in the fridge and the solution will settle, liquid on top, a yeast layer, then general trub. I don’t do a cleaning process of the yeast unless going to keep for over a week. When ready to use , take it out of the fridge and drain off the liquid, let it get to room temperature then add the rest to your wort. (If you a doing another brew straight away just tip the lot in.)

How often do you reharvest the yeast @Barrelboy

The Brewprint yeasts aren’t all that expensive so I don’t do it often. Usually if I’ve run out of a particular one I’ll harvest and keep in the fridge until required (not long).

When I was doing the 23l kit brews I harvest often to get some decent volume of yeast as those 7g packs under the lids for 23l was fairly sparse.
