M sure there might be post close to this. My first yeast wash been sitting in fridge for a month. Just wondering if the color still looks good.?

Sorry for bad picks. I read in J Palmers if it looks like penut butter to discard it. This doesnt look like penutbutter but it dosnt look as clear as ive seen it before.

Also if its good could I just dump the top and just add all to make 1 mason jar?

Yes sir. That was my plan.

Also while your awnsering questions i plan on washing some dry notty yeast. Would that be worth it? At 5 bucks a pack I was gonna try.

If you skip the water wash you will have 10 times more viable yeast. IME you are just putting good yeast down the drain. For details see this:

Okay, Ill take a look at this thanks.

Edit: not sure I get it. So I should just take everything onin primary and just dump it in a mason jar? Instead of using water to wash it?

That's it. Just pour the cake into jars. You end up with much more yeast and it takes much less time.
