For the first time I harvested and washed some Safale-05. I only went through one washing cycle. The yeast sat 24 hours at 65' f. I got about 300 ml of yeast sitting at the bottom of the jar. When I pitched, it was thick and I had to shake the bottle to get it out (I did not make a starter).

Mr. Malty has a "Thin Slurry" - "Thick Yeast" slider on their calculator and a "Non-Yeast" percentage. Does anyone know where harvested and washed once yeast sit on these scales? Because I was either right on (300 ml), or seriously over-pitched (70 ml).

Thanks for your information.

i think that would be thick slurry with a very low non-yeast solids percentage.

Yeah. It has been bubbling like a bat out of hell the last 48 hours. Serious over-pitch. I hope it doesn't mess up the flavor (Oatmeal Stout).
