I just started washing and reusing yeast. I recently brewed a Hefeweizen with yeast that I had in the fridge for about 3 months. I took one mason jar and made a starter. It came out great and I couldn't tell a difference between the first batch w/ WY3068 and the second one with the washed 3068. Same results with an Amber I did earlier in the year when I used washed WY1056 that was about 3 months old. Again, I made a starter with that batch. I've read posts on here and other places where brewers have had success with much older washed yeast product.
