Repitching yeast off strong ale?
This is a rather straight forward question: is it a good idea to re-pitch yeast off a high gravity beer? You see I just kegged a Belgium strong dark and I saved the yeast from the secondary in a sanitized mason jar. I racked it to the keg to lager after only two weeks in the secondary and the yeast smells fresh and clean. The yeast is Wyeast 1388 and the brew is about 9.5 alc. I'm wanting to brew a Blond in the next couple days and re-pitching yeast is something new to me. Any pointers would be appreciated

Make a fresh yeast starter using a small portion of the tired yeast. Build it up over at least a week with multiple feedings and plenty of oxygen.

Re: Repitching yeast off strong ale?
Ok, I made a two qt starter however, I did not use but about four oz of the yeast (about a full shot glass worth). I figured that is alot more than you get from a smack pack. One thing I didn't take into account is that the yeast my not have been 100% viable. I'll cross my fingers.
