i just have a hypothetical situation question about sanatizing and washing yeast.
say i washed a batch of american wheat yeast and some bacteria or wild yeast got in there.
and then say i made a starter with it down the road... would the bacteria/wild yeast die off when i make the starter, or is there a good chance that the bacteria/wild yeast would make its way into a batch of beer.
or on the other hand would it grow in the jar in my fridge and show obvious signs of infection.
i ask this because as i was washing my yeast, there was a crazy amount of troub, spent hops and orange peel and it refused to separate from the water i added, so i soaked a muslin bag in starsan and filtered the watery troub through.
im not worried, just curious how easily any nasties can make their way from washed yeast to beer. or if a starter would kill them off...
