Default The yeast in my starter got hard?

Washed some WL001 a couple weeks ago.

I threw it in a starter a couple days ago and it seemed to fire up ok. (it was about 1/2 cup of yeast).

After 2 days, the yeast has gotten pretty solidified at the bottom of the glass jug. I can swirl and shake it around, and it eventually seems to mix back into solution (after some work), but I have never seen it like this when I buy it in the vial, nor have I seen it like this in a starter.

Did I do something wrong while washing?

I was hoping to split this between two batches tomorrow, so Im slightly worried (not that worried, but would like to konw)
