ok, i followed the instructions for washing found on this site. It went very well.

The mason jars have been in the refig for one week. I brought one out and let it come to room temp. I then poured off the top liquid. Then I created a starter with DME and water. When it was cooled to 75 degrees I added it to the jar. shook it well, and poured it into a growler and airlocked it.

I had very good activity after 4 hours. I let it sit for 24 hours, then started my next brew.

I added the starter as usual. This time however after two day's I haven't seen any activity in my primary. Has anyone else had anything similar happen after washing yeast?
