1056 ???washed yeast???????
 
2 Attachment(s)

Hia, I'm making a starter as we speak using Wyeast 1056 American Ale.

I washed it from a Brown Ale I made, and I'm STILL "UNSURE" what the layers are. OR Where exactly is the yeast in this bottle?

I look real close at it and can see all white, But even closer look I see this maybe 1/8 " layer on top of all the whitish other stuff?

WHERE's THE YEAST LOL

I thought i did a good job this time of washing it without getting much trub?

IS it ALL yeast and no trub? Or is it mostly all Trub and that 1/8" layer the Lil yeasties?

I've read many posts about it and people reply differently about what is the yeast?

OK If i have any yeast in there (I'm guessing the 1/8" layer at the top is what I have. Is that enough/or more that comes in a smack pack?

Replies quickly would really help at this moment !\"\"
