    I had that happen a couple of years ago. I refroze them, and only some of them made it back.
    One really screwed up a batch, which I attributed to some weird mutation, no bacteria, good
    starter, etc. I...

    WLP002, kind of what I thought looked like highly flocculated yeast not broken up yet. I bet in
    a day or so, the egg-looking stuff in the middle will either break up or fall to the bottom.
    Either way,...

    Yuck, would be my first thought. What yeast strain did you harvest from the fourth batch? And
    how much of the slurry did you use?

    Are you sure it's not just a layer of broken up hop particles? Looks ok from the pic. Is it dry

    I put the vial in a glass of lukewarm water to thaw just before pitching to the starter. I make
    a stock canned solution of 45% glycerine and pressure cook it. Then add 3 ml of that to 10ml of
    slurry w...

    To comment on lshaner's post about terminal density, I'll routinely do cell counts for finished
    starters under a scope, and the strain really does make a difference, very commonly 2-fold
    difference fo...

    Decant beer, split slurry to several vials, add sterilized glycerine to final concentration of
    10%, mix and freeze. Good for a few years at least. Make a starter wort, unthaw vial quickly
    and add slur...
