Experimentale Brew 3, November 29 2008

Time to utilize the time saver when brewing multiple batches for an upcoming event: racking on a yeast bed. This is certainly a debatable technique but very practical for the homebrewer. Basically, you rack off a previous batch to its secondary tank and instead of cleaning the primary, simply pour in new wort. This saves time otherwise spent cleaning the primary and making another yeast starter (no need to buy more yeast too).

I'm not a fan of the American Light Lager but this commercial is hilarious:
