Default Using washed yeast ...

So last night I washed yeast for the first time. Because it was my first time I'm sure everything didn't go perfectly, and I'm not entirely confident about it. Is there a way to tell if the yeast are clean before pitching a batch of beer? How easy is it to spot an infection or contamination in a starter?

You can do the smell or taste test. Thats usually what I have done. Smell the starters as its fermenting and even try some of it. It if smells or tastes funky, its probably infected.
