    Hey everyone, trying to build a seperatory funnel for harvesting yeast. I have some yeast I have been keeping and some that is in slurry that I'd like to wash and put away for a while.

    I have washed in the normal manner, but I find I throw away a lot of viable yeast causing more starter building (and planning ahead lol)

    One thing you might need a bleeder valve or something. Because as you empty out the yeast itll cause back pressure until the flow stops. Or i suppose you can just squeeze untill youve got your yeast you need.

    I am. I'll be there on Monday, need to bottle a bunch for competition. I'm gonna win something through volume if not by skill!
