I am in the process of researching how to get the most efficiency out of my yeast. I have already read the yeast washing illustrated thread and now I am trying to research how to create a yeast starter. I have already read the yeast starter wiki page, but I still have one question.
So when I use DME to create my starter I can
1) Put it in the fridge to separate, pour off the liquid and add more DME to grow more yeast.
2) Put it in the fridge to separate, pour off the top layer of liquid and pitch whatever is left into my wort
3) Put it in the fridge to separate and keep it until I need it
4) Pitch the yeast w/ the DME into my wort
Is that correct? If so, when I pour off the DME wort, will there be any liquid left to mix the remaining yeast at the bottom of my jar? Also, if I have to keep some of the DME in my yeast as a solvent, won't that effect the taste of my beer? Thanks in advance for the help guys, this is an entirely unique aspect to the hobby and I want to slowly learn it the right way.
