Default Very pale washed 3711 yeast

After brewing a Rye Saisson, I washed the 3711 yeast early this week. I now have 2 mason jars that are both very pale looking with very little trub at the bottom. I have washed a few other yeasts in the past and the color is so much darker. Is this normal or did I do something wrong in the process.

Thanks,

Sheldon

No, my washed 3711 is very pail too. Then I repitched some of the washed yeast 5days ago and I just checked its at 1.006 from 1.056 and the sample tastes like it should. So fear not, give ot a try.

If its been since Feb. you'll want to wake to up in a starter. I've never made any conection b/t color and viability of yeast slant. If its old, 3-4 weeks I make a starter and note its activity, lag time and smell before deciding it I'm going to ptich it.

My saison with 3711 will be my first attempt at washing yeast. My LHBS doesn;t carry wyeast so I want to make sure I have yeast for my next saison.

3711 is a good yeast to wash and keep its tough and can take the rough handling.
