    Does anyone (Ian?) know if the colloidal finings have any detrimental effects on collecting the yeast from the sediment bottle and reusing?

    Hi,
    if you want to harvest the yeast you should take the yeast that settles before fining. You ideally want the middle part but it will mix when you take it off and the pressure is reduced. You’ll need to aerate any brew you re-use this yeast on and use 1% of the volume of the brew. So 230ml yeast in 23 litres. Dry yeast is more convenient as it doesn’t need aerating. After fining a large part of what you see if protein haze not yeast so not to be re-used. Cheers

    Have read/look at this topic on Aussiehomebrewer for some pointers on one technique.
