Brulosopher,

Thanks for the step by step on your method. I agree that this makes more sense than washing yeast as long as you are making a starter anyway. EdWort posted that he harvests from his starters as well, but didn't document his method as well.

I am a beginner and have not yet even created a starter, (only pitching dry yeast), but I have been researching this and will most likely use something very close to your method of harvesting yeast when I start using liquid yeasts.

Brulosopher,

I'm going to harvest yeast from a starter I'm making this week using your method. Can you explain the benefit of the 250ml mason jar with 1/2 water? Why is that preferable to just saving the 500ml jar that you originally harvested the yeast into?

Thanks! (my 100th post by the way! Woot! woot!)

For longer term storage (4+ weeks), deoxygenated water is simply a more hospitable environment. You could easily get away with skipping this part of the process... I'm just a tad neurotic, and it's so easy
