Once you get a ferment going, its easy to reuse the yeast..

Started out a bit rough, I am sure their is all sorts of cross breeding going on in there, surely war of some kind in the beginning, but in the end a great party mix! The mutant mix is doing really well in the heat with a nice slow ferment without a lot of head and tails. Taste is crisp and clean with good mouth feel and flavor. Hard to beat dumb luck, I have learned, so I am going with it. I think I am going to save this motley crue for later .
