You can usually re-use yeast from one batch to another, but after fourteen days... I wouldn't.

Agree with above. 14 days is far too long and will risk an infection.

If I am going to re-use yeast from primary trub, I take it within an hour or two of racking. Using a sanitzed measuring cup, I will either direct pitch into wort, wash and pitch, or wash and store in fridge.
