This topic has probably been beaten to death. So I have questions. I have read in many places that you shouldn't collect dry yeast to reuse. I did just that yesterday. I top cropped Lallemand Belle Saison yeast from my fermenter and I now have what looks like a good amount to reuse. Here are my questions. Will the yeast be viable for the next use? If yes to #1 above should I use a starter when ready to pitch this yeast? Thanks folks for your help.
