I have seen this before using different types of bottles from Grolsch to the
11.5oz short Labbats bottles. The yeast will cling to the design on the
Grolsch as well as the sholders of the bottle.

I simply use the method the winemakers use, give the bottle a sharp turn and
allow to sit to settle. The question this brings up is will it shake up the
yeast enough to restart mild fermentation. I usually do this when moving
bottles from cold storage to the refrig. apx 4-48 hours before drinking.

My brewing has been limited to single can extract brewing with the use of
Corn surgar. (just as a reference point)
