    Sorry. They are both about an hour maybe 90 minutes after settling. So should I discard that
    whole bottom layer? Theres bound to be some good yeast on the very top of the bottom layer if
    that makes an...

    Going to wash some yeast. I've saved full cakes for a while and used them but wanted to try
    washing. In these photos is the granular stuff traub? Or yeast? Much finer stuff in very

    The ones in pots were just purchased, not sure how old. I took/cut anything that had a decent
    'nub' or starting shoot whatever they are called. Almost all of them grew nicely. I dug

    Not sure just where to post this but here goes. I looked and read many of the posts but didn't
    see answer to my question.I've never re-used or washed yeast and will try using the sticky
    method here. Q...

    OK. Never did this before but figured I'd give it a shot since its only 6 Gallons. In the past
