Default My first yeast wash

Well this is my first yeast wash and I think it turned out good. This is Wyeast Pacman. What do you think?

So I just warm one of these up, decant some of the liquid, and pitch this in my flask with correct amount of DME and on to the stir plate? This is enough yeast to do a 1 to 2 liter starter?

Added 1 gallon of boiled water (chilled to room temp before i added it to the carboy) and stirred it up. This is the yeast layered out after 20 minutes. Beer on top, healthy yeast in the middle and trub on the bottom.

This picture shows the yeast nicely sitting on the bottom of the jars after 19 hours in the meat drawer of my fridge at 35f.

looks cleaner than my first two attempts. Good job. I ended up with some hop particles in mine and 9 months later I'm still making good beers with them.
