I have a queastion that I havn't had answered to my satisfaction

1st I would like to clarify something. "Rinsing" yeast is what we do alot of with sanitary water and transfer to disinfected containers. "Washing" yeast is what some brewerys do when they harvest yeast by treating it (with something) to kill bateria and/or seperate the yeast they want.

?Qeastion"

Could I wash my beer yeast with metabisulfite to kill bateria, in a wash/rinse cycle, or are beer yeast not as tolerant as wine yeast to mete'?

Don't do that. You need to build up a starter unless you have several cups of washed yeast solids in jar. According to mr. malty, yeast viability drops pretty quick. A starter is cheap insurance and a proper, healthy picth of yeast will result in better beer every time.

thanks.. I feel like I am making beer...to make beer when I use a starter. I need to get some liquid malt to use rather than mashing two row for my starters.

I just mash 2row myself for starter wort. If I have extra jars left over from garden season, I'm going to can starter wort in the pressure canner. That way I'll have a few gallons of starter ready to go and it will be in convenient 1 qt jars. I'm too cheap to buy DME...
