I have just recently washed yeast from a batch of Cream Ale that has finished it's fermentation period. I used approximately 1 gallon of water to wash the yeast, and have poured it off into 2 containers which are currently sitting in my fridge. I know that the yeast multiples during the fermentation process, so my question is whether I need to use all the yeast I have washed (approx. 1 gallon with the water it has been washed with) to pitch into my next batch of Cream Ale? Also, I've seen videos online of people creating Yeast starters with package yeast, but not with washed yeast from a previous batch. I have no experience in pitching washed yeast, so any information ya'll can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
