OK, I've read the first 15 pages on the washing yeast sticky. I haven't really fround my answer yet. Hopefully I can explain what I think is correct along with one more question.
From what I understand, after mixing sterile (boiled and cooled) water to the bottom of the primary, mix it up and pour it into some type of jar. Let it set in the fridge and let it seperate. The stuff on top (clearer stuff) is waste and is not needed. The stuff on the bottom is what we want. Correct?
My question: My mix has a lot of trub. How do I get rid of the trub? Right now, after about 20 minutes I have 1/4" on the top layer (clearest), 1" in the middle (yeast?) and 1 1/2" on the bottom of the jar (trub).
Will I have 3 layers by tomorrow or will the yeast and trub mix together? If I have 3 layers, it's the middle layer that I want?
I haven't seen any pictures that look like my attepted yeast wash.
Thanks for any help.
