Default SERIOUSLY! Is this safe to use...

I already posted a thread on here about using these cultures I made. I just want to make sure that everyone's general con census is that he entire.bottom layer is a nice yeast cake and not a sedimentary trub.

As long as you were good with sanitation, I'd say go for it.

If its tight and compact its yeast mostly. If its soft and squishy its trub mostly. How long has it been in that jar? If over a week I'd do a starter before you pitch.

If you shake it up, or wash it it should redistribute like this...



Yeast usually sits on the trub layer. But when we're just scooping it out of the fermenter, it often gests out of order

Decant, give it a good swirl and use everything you have.

It's hard to see the numbers in the picture, but if that is about 75ml then you likely have 50-75 billion viable yeast cells. If you take just the thin dense layer that is only about 3 billion yeast cells.

95% of the viable yeast are tied up in the "trub" layer.

Here is a 2nd look at water washing yeast I did more recently:

Sick!

Another question...if I don't see krausen by tomorrow-can I just go grab some new yeast and re-pitch?
