What was your method of collection? It looks like you may have a fine layer of yeast sitting on the top.

Two days is not enough, let it sit in a fridge for a week or two. You should be able to clearly see the layers of beer/yeast/trub in the jar by that time.

I used the yeast washing methodology found in the sticky. I cooled boiled water on the trub and gave it a good swirl. Then, after 20 minutes I poured it out into a bigger glass jar, waited 20 mins then poured it again. So the yeast is the whiter part of the settled material? I think I can better see it in an older sample.
