Default Saving WLP300

Bottling my heffe in a week, anyone here washed and saved yeast in the same vial that they bought it in? Seems logical, neat, tidy and alrady labeled! I want to save some of this $6 yeast

Use a quart mason jar. More yeast is better.

Yes, I use a tall fairly narrow jar that is similar to the ones that spanish olives come in. When pouring into it, it is mixed w/water so the volume is pretty big (after being washed). Once it settles out in the fridge, you can pour off most of the water and then you could swirl it around to loosen it up and pour it into sanitized Whitelab vial. That's what I do, but then I use the stuff left in the tall jar (without starter) for my next batch. The vial is a longer term storage that I will use for a future batch and will do a starter with it before pitching.

All the time.

I also put a label on it with the batch number it came from and the date.

You need to add glycerine first.

I think the ratio was 4 parts yeast to 1 part glycerine.

Do a search it may come up.
