Thanks
If a yeast flocs before the trub, simply allowing it to resettle won't do anything. Keep the creamy white layer. You don't have to get rid of the off-white layer. It won't hurt anything.

I had a similar experience with wy2007 lager yeast, I poured off the murky liquid, it still had some white yeast that settled out in the fridge, then i discarded the darker layer and saved the bottom white layer and recombined the two saved layers when I pitched.

I'm sure you will be fine either way, I was previously not washing my slurry cause I only rack clear beer to my fermenter.
