Default Blow off question??

Okay so yesterday a poured a Lambic wort on a yeast cake and I luckily used a blow off hose because this time I needed it. I justed emptied the pitcher I'm letting it blow off into and I swear I saw yeast collecting at the bottom. Is this correct and if so can i harvest, wash, and store this yeast??

I don't think that would be a good idea for the blow off container has unsanized water exposed to open air or some kind of sanitizer in it. If you did not have an form of liquid in it then you will want to put some in to keep nasties from working their way up the tube.
