    Liquid yeast, forget in my car, 12 hours frozen

    Tried it anyways, but didnt work well, no krauzen in the fermentor (fermentor B)

    4 days after the beginning of the mini-fermentation, I wash wheat beer yeast (which was in fermentor A, 4 days in the fermentor too, 2 brew that day). I poured 3/4 of the wheat beer yeast (fermentor A) into my NEIPA's fermentor. Last 1/4 back in to my peach wheat beer which is still fermenting.

    Dear dudes, Is it going to work?

    That's a tough call, I don't know. I'd have done a very small starter on it personally just to see if I could get it going again.

    You're going to get fermenation from the washed yeast, I just don't know what it's going to do.

    thanks Hawkbox, I will let you know if the fermentation worked out on tuesday.
    I dont know if the neipa was too bad before I pitched the yeast 2 hours ago. The odour wasnt great...

    Just let it ride, try it when it's done and see what you end up with.

    I took many hours learning washing yeast, then how to count yeast cell. Lets work on it.
