Default First attempt at Yeast Washing...does this seem right?

Followed the sticky on yeast washing yesterday. Now, I know it's only been in the jars for a day, but it seems like there might be a lot more sediment than there should be. I allowed it to sit for twenty minutes, twice, just like the sticky said.

Here's a pic:

Any thoughts?

I don't get that much sediment, but it looks OK.

It's not a very good picture but the only thing off that I can see is the streaks running through it. Other than that it looks like a nice beige batch of yeast to me.

Yeah, I thought the same thing.

Looks fine. Some of mine don't have that much sediment. One of mine has a lot because I decided to forgo the turkey baster and pour the contents of one jar into the other. I won't be doing that anymore.

Yeah, sorry about the quality of the picture...my laptop doesn't have the best camera. But thanks for the feedback, I was worried I had done something wrong.

And yes, the M&M's are quite fantastic.
