Drink that shit. Drink it UP. It's good for you.
Really? I thought they flash-pasteurized all their beers, even the "wild" ones in the Lips of Faith series. Kinda assumed that would render any remaining yeast sediments useless, for brewing purposes.
Drink it. It will put hair on your chest.
Pound that shit, bro!
For those who are saying to use the yeast in bottle to brew, you might want to check out the list at Madfermentationist for the ones that have the same yeast as was used in brewing the beer. Many bottle conditioned beers are bottled with a different yeast that you prob. don't want to brew with.
I think it's funny that the option on the poll is " no, this disturbs me." I am apparently the only one who objects to the texture of the yeast and yes it does disturb me!
Give that barkeep a whole bunch of style points. That's livin' the high life. (Oops, sorry).
Depends on the style, how much yeast is in there, and the mood I'm in at the time.
I pour it over my T-zone and massage gently in a small semi-circle pattern to exfoliate. The microbes really open up your pores.
Save about 5 bottles, grow it and use it in my next batch of home brew
the la folie were corked and caged, this implies pre-pasteurization. the others were pasteurized.
I try to rotate the beer horizontally repeatedly just before I open it in an attempt to distribute the yeast. Somewhat effective. After the first pour (from a bomber) I swirl the remaining beer around somewhat vigorously to suspend the remainder of yeast in the liquid for further pours. If it is a small bottle, I do this about 1/2way through the bottle.
I never notice yeast in my bottle. I've never cared to look. I'm much more concerned about getting every last drop of my beer into my glass, and then into my mouth. I always swirl my bottle before pouring the last few ounces though.
Maybe I'm doing it wrong.
I need a crash course on which beers deserve sediment. I've been willing to pour it into hefes and kolsches so far and that's about it. I'm especially curious to know about this lambic that I have in the fridge.
Any of them
I always pour the sediment in my glass. Doesn't hurt anything and I like watching all the floaties
I always add it to Belgian beers.
Leave a 1/2 inch in the bottle to save for the last swig; pour it in your glass at the end.
I can't say I've ever come across a Kölsch with sediment in the bottle. Has anybody else found it? I'm curious, in which one have you found it?
It kind of grosses me out. Obviously I drink beer when it's floating around, but I won't gulp the yeast when it's just concentrated at the bottom of my glass. I just leave that last sip of it sitting in there.
Besides, I don't want diarrhea.
