I read the WONDERFUL thread about yeast washing

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f13/yeas...strated-41768/

and have my first batch - my question is when I go to use my batch I toss out the liquid on top and I WANT that middle layer.

Just what are those layers anyway - what do they consist of.

Bottom to top: trub, yeast, wort.

P.S. Why not just post to the original yeast washing thread?

If ya wanna get technical, that top layer is likely beer, since it has already completed fermentation.

Touche, Yuri! A very dilute beer at that.

I'm still pondering how to ask a question without the use of a questions mark.

Or at least the guy.

The suspended yeast will compact down into the line there above the trub, leaving beer on top.

Because it would get lost in the clutter and because sometimes threads get to large and tend to drift to other topics AND there are questions from 2 weeks ago that were never answered.

People get bored with large threads and no longer read them.

I do it because I know it ticks off anal spell checkers :-)

MAN - you guys are passive attacking me today!

I respectfully disagree. There are some on-topic threads of epic proportion (like hundreds of pages) here. But c'est la vie!

I'm a visual spell checker thank you very much.



Had it not been for Yuri and flyangler, I probably wouldn't have posted it, but in the spirit of the thread, I felt compelled.
