Sorry---Not getting any response from the Yeast forum. Thought I would try here, too
I washed come WLP-001 last night. This is the 2nd cultivation for this yeast. Step 2 in an APA/APA/IPA progression.
I've washed yeast 4-5 other times, and every single time, the thick, white creamy yeast (the good stuff) has settled on top of the dark, icky, hop-laden trub in my jars.
Last night, this was not the case.
My jars have the normal 3-bands of matter, but go in the order of (top to bottom):
* Thin, watery beer
* Dark, grimy trub
* White, creamy yeast
I've not seen that to date. What gives?
