It's probably still usable, but you didn't let the trub settle out, and that's the entire purpose of washing your yeast. You've got a lot more than just yeast in your jars, you have hops, trub, basically all of the dregs that you wanted to get rid of by washing.

Pretty much, but you may still have viable yeast in your jars. Don't throw them away just yet. Make a starter and see what happens. The dregs won't hurt anything, but the whole purpose behind washing is to leave the dregs out.

As long as you allow the jars to settle out and then decant off the liquid into other jars wouldn't that be the same as letting it all settle in the fermentor?

If I wash us-05 and store in pint jars, how long do they last (average) and can I just mix and dump or do I need to make a starter....sorry if covered earlier.

I've already asked this once, but I'm still curious to see if anyone knows about this.

If I repitched some dry safale on top of my liquid whitelab 005 and then washed the yeast, will it be alright to use? I'm about to need a WL005 soon (Monday soon!) and don't want to ruin it if this isn't a good idea.

Thanks guys!

I'd say it will ferment duffman, but with two strains who knows which one will dominate?

Thanks mag, and I agree that I don't know how it will turn out but if both strains are suitable for the style I'm brewing I may not be in bad shape.......but I dunno. I haven't experimented with yeast enough to know about this, but I guess I'll give it a try!

If it works out you may have your own unique yeast blend to keep harvesting. Could give you a very distinct brew. Let us know how it goes.
