Thanks, that helps. When I let my big jar sit for ~20, I began to see 3 layers. So I poored off the top 2 (leaving the trub behind) and put this into 2 seperate mason jars in the fridge. I maybe could have poored them before the top 2 layers started to seperate, but this morning the 2 jars look just as they should.
For some reason the sticky on washing yeast got me a little confused and was a bit long to read through. You two cleared it up nicely for me.
