Reuse yeast on refill of DIY CO2

So i'm guessing the brown slime on the bottom of the bottle is settled yeast?
Am I correct to assume so?

Should I clean it out before making a new solution?

Yes, that's yeast. Pour out the alcohol and remaining liquid from the bottle and retain the yeast on the bottom.

The remains should be enough. The yeast will continue to reproduce when you give them new sugar to consume.

If you find that your mixture is not fermenting up to snuff, your yeast may be depleted of essential nutrients. Brew stores have "yeast nutrient" that contains B-vitamins that can become depleted over time.
