Are you trying to say there is just as much non-yeast matter in the clean, white yeast I get after rinsing as in the yeast cake/trub I rack off of? If so, I don't believe that.
Mostly yes. The post explains it, but in summary: cell counts I have done show that the viability is the same in all layers. Water washing is not successful at separating live from dead cells.

But isn't is successful at removing non-yeast and isn't that the point?

While your mythbusting homebrewing, I saw your amazon sidebar has the 'Joy of Homebrewing'. Maybe you can tackle hot-side aeration next.

I have found that water washing yeast removes fruit partials well, and hop particles fairly well, but it isn't as good at removing protein. At the cost of loosing 95% of the yeast I see it as an overall loss.

What do you see as a benefit to removing the non-yeast material?

Mythbusting homebrew. I never thought of it that way. Hot side aeration would be hard to quantify, but I'll consider it.
