Hia, I'm making a starter as we speak using Wyeast 1056 American Ale.

I washed it from a Brown Ale I made, and I'm STILL "UNSURE" what the layers are. OR Where exactly is the yeast in this bottle?

I look real close at it and can see all white, But even closer look I see this maybe 1/8 " layer on top of all the whitish other stuff?

WHERE's THE YEAST LOL

I thought i did a good job this time of washing it without getting much trub?

IS it ALL yeast and no trub? Or is it mostly all Trub and that 1/8" layer the Lil yeasties?

I've read many posts about it and people reply differently about what is the yeast?

OK If i have any yeast in there (I'm guessing the 1/8" layer at the top is what I have. Is that enough/or more that comes in a smack pack?

Replies quickly would really help at this moment !

You can see the trub is that slightly darker grey on the bottom. That top 75% is yeast.

Hey Guys, Thanks, Im using the Yeast Calculator and going to make it NOW.

I was just UN Sure if it was all yeast because it was all white.

I'd have to say then, This washing was the best one I did so far.

Thank's again for your quick help!!!

That top photo looks like you have 75-80 mL. of 'thick' solids. If you plug in your future brew gravity and gals. into Mr. Malty calculator then click on 'repitching from slurry' then move the 'yeast concentration' arrow over to 'thick yeast', you can see how many mL. of that thick yeast you need for adequate pitching. Depending on what brew you are making, how many gals, and how old that yeast is, determines how many mL. you need.

That's because Mr. Malty thinks 90% of your yeast is dead. It calculates 10% viability on that date, which I'd think is a might low. No worries with a starter
