Default Yeast Washing

Washed some yeast (or tried to) a couple of weeks ago. I think that we ended up with a lot of trub in the jars. We did not see a lot of seperation either in the bucket or in the first jar before transferring to smaller jars. Is the yeast still going to keep, or would the trub jeopordize the viability of the yeast? Any possibility of nasty off-flavours?

Thanks for any input!

In my opinion, as long as you've got yeast in there, and you make a starter with it to be sure it's viable the next time you brew, you should be okay. Even if you got some gunk in there, that stuff will settle out in your fermenter, and then you'd be racking off it anyway. Just make a starter, and you should be fine.
