Thanks Brulosopher! I actually saw that about an hour ago and was reading through it. Great info!

My pleasure! Once you use this process, you'll never go back to washing used yeast. I've got a 6th generation WLP001 that brought a 1.056 beer down to 1.012 in 4 days, no off flavors and everything you'd expect from that strain. I'll be building up a 3rd generation WLP036 this week.

That's impressive! I'm washing mainly just to familiarize myself with the process. Once i have a flask and build my stir plate (I'm a computer tech so plenty of parts floating around for it!) and get some other equipment I want to start making slants and stuff.

I wish I were (or was good friends with) a computer guy. I've wanted to build another stir plate on the cheap for awhile, but I seriously have no access to the innards of an old computer. Let me know if you'd be willing to work out a deal with me for a working fan and some magnets

I think the wash went well. I might have done similar to you in that I threw out some good yeast with the trub upon a re wash attempt. But I still have two mason jars with a good amount. Like you, I'm mostly after the learning experience.
