Okay makes sense, so looks like the water I boiled last night I wont need it today.
How many 12oz mason jars will this take?
The cake from a five gallon batch will fill about five 12 oz mason jars. Each one will have about 200 billion cells.
Well I filled 2 up i left the rest of the sludge in my bucket. Im going to work on reducing my trub and hop sludge. (I use pellet hops)
Both mason jars were filled with about have the trub, but the other half looks nice and yeasty.
There is quite a bit of viable yeast in the part that looks like trub. There is a post with details coming soon on my blog.
Okay Ill get a pick after the holidays, thanks for keeping me posted.
I've got 6 half pint jars with the remaining cake from a recent batch. It has about 2 inches of crap in the bottom with a layer maybe 1/4 inch thick that appears to be healthy yeast.
When the time comes to use this as a starter am I simply decanting and taking ONLY that 1/4 inch thick of yeast and tossing it in my primary??? Only way i can see getting it out is with a spoon???

Just pitch the whole thing. You can decant the water first if you want. They layers all contain viable yeast.
