What I did was I poured off the suspended yeast, leaving the trub behind at least 6 times, does this look like there is anymore trub in it? I can take a better picture if need be.
looks good to me.. nice cream colored washed yeast

Agreed. Slap on a label and give it a home in the fridge.
this came from a 3 gallon batch. how many 1 time uses can I get out of my washed yeast?
I think most people say they use their yeast 3-4 generations, and don't let any batch sit for more than 6 months (I believe).
take a small potion and make a starter
I guess what I meant to ask was how many gallons can I make out of the yeast I have in my jelly jar? If it came from a 3 gallon batch
Layla, make a starter out of that, and you could pitch into 10 gallons if you wanted to. Awesome job- absolutely awesome!
It may seem troublesome, but making a starter is preferable to using the washed yeast directly as it gets the yeast working again and proves it's viability. I agree with the above comments on your result. great job!
Thank you, thank you very much (takes a bow) lol Are you saying to make a starter out of the whole thing, pitch it to my beer? Sorry for the ignorance, I must be tired.
