I did my first washing 2 weeks ago with the help of this thread . I made a starter just to see if I did it right. Man it took off the wort was swirling around on its own..Now i need to read up on freezing the yeast...

Hey All,
I am getting ready to try this for the first time. I have marked up a picture from Truckmans washed yeast in this thread just to make sure of which layer I am going after. I realize this is not in the Carboy but it should be the same!

I got this from the bottom of my conical. I drew a little trub off yesterday, so this must be pretty pure yeast. My first time all from reading this thread. Thank you very much.

sorry, its a cell phone pic.

I am going to suck the yeast off the bottom and put it in a boiled jar and boiled then cooled water. I am going to use sanitized foil and the screw on part of the top so it can breathe a little.

Next a stir plate......

Thanks again!

This is what I ended up width so far. Putting some boiled and cooled water in with the beer helps the yeast settle out. Then I sucked em out with a sanatized turkey baster and put it in the jar with boiled and cooled water.

Look right?

These are just out of the fridge.

My first attempt at washing yeast. So as far as I can see from other pics, it's supposed to look like this, yes?

So I got what I think I washed and what is left in the carboy. What is yeast, what is trub? This is a friends strain, and I'd like to keep it
