Great job, your video makes this process crystal clear. Good timing too, I'll be doing my first yeast wash this weekend. Many thanks for doing this!

I've never met you but you are now my new favorite person for posting this video. I am now 100% confident in yeast washing. I don't know why I didn't think of just sanitizing the containers rather than boiling.

Ah hahahaha, he said crap!

Seriouslly, nice tip on the StarSan vs. boiling the jars. I dumped the gallon jar all over the counter - SWMBO was not happy. Thanks again for yet another excellent video Billy!

Soooo...did my first yeast wash tonight thanks to this video. Racked the beer of a IIPA with WL 001...

I do have a question:

After I decanted to the 1G jar and let settle, I began to dump off some of the beer and liquid layer, as I got to the yeast layer I noticed that it really just mixed with the hop and protein trub. I reserved about 1 inch of this in the 1G jar and each of my pints has about 1/2-3/4 inch of yeast after settiling, but each also has about the same amount of trub.

Is there some trick that I missed? More settling time in the 1G perhaps?

Did he decant off the beer and liquid layer? I don't recall seeing that. I'm guessing you stirred up some of the trub into the yeast layer.

I'm planning to do this after my next batch, so in 3 or 4 weeks... I hope it works out.

Also, are there any yeasts that do not seem to respond very well to this technique? Or can one assume that all yeasts are OK?

There is some evidence that washing weizen and Belgian yeast will numb its character over time. Those strains prefer to be top-cropped, apparently.
