Default Strange Yeast Consistency

The clumpy consistency of this yeast looks strange to me. I usually brew with wyeast, but am trying WL this time around. I usually see the yeast completely dissolved in the wort. Could this be a bad slant? It is WL002.

002 is very flocculent, it has a chunky, almost grainy appearance

There are as many odd ways yeast looks and forms, and behaves, as there are varieties of yeast out there.

Looks like cottage cheese to me. Good old 002
