I seem to be getting mixed information in this thread.
Attempt1 (2 jars have both light and darker yeast as can be seen in the picture, one has only the white part and a lot more white than the other 2).
Is this because it is a yeast blend or because only the white stuff on top is good?
Attemp2, I didn't get the same 2 layers of seperation. Most of the yeast is a cream color, although there is much more yeast total, there is only a very fine layer of white yest on the top.
Attemp3, the yeast seems pretty mixed up. Mostly cream color with splotches of white.
I'm going to make a 1.063 og beer this weekend so I am making a starter right now with yeast from attempt2.
Mr Malty is telling me I need about 2 liters since the yeast is over a month old. however I will more than likely only end up with a 1.5L starter.
I'm afraid to pitch directly due to differences in information (or my misunderstanding of it) in this thread.
