Using the Brew Bucket for yeast propagation

Here is a note from a customer:

I've been using your brew bucket for a year or so and I just wanted to let you know that I love this for fermenting my homebrews and also for harvesting yeast. Harvesting yeast is a snap. After transferring my brew into a secondary carboy, I carefully dump off any remaining beer from the yeast slurry. I add (3) 28oz. jars of sanitized water (boil water and jars for 10-15 minutes), then swirl the water in a circular motion to mix all the yeast slurry with the water. Let sit for 10 minutes. Rotate the racking tube to near the top of the solution and drain into (2) jars, rotating the cane downward as the liquid level drops. I normally fill each jar about 1/3rd full and rotate back and forth until both jars are filled. Discard whatever is left in the brew bucket.

Thanks again for making such a fine product.
