Hi, washing some Wyeast 1968 (high flocculator like WLP002). Thinking my yeast is the middle layer (the smoother tan layer, right below the liquid.). Do you agree?

If I can't figure how to post a photo from this iPhone app, I'll post it in reply.

Thanks for your help.

Ok, I'll be more specific: It's the middle layer I am trying to save, right? Yes, I know there is yeast throughout, but if you had to call one of them the yeast layer, what would it be?
