I kegged a lager last night and I'm trying to rinse the yeast for re-use but I have a couple questions. I've done this with ales before and there was always a distinct layering of the beer/yeast/trub in the jar. But, in this case I've shaken it up and rinsed it 3 times already, leaving it sit for various lengths of time (from 10 min to overnight) and I don't see any "yeast" layer. I get liquid and a very thick slurry of slightly greenish sediment.
There wasn't very much hop material added to the fermenter in the first place so it is possible that this could be mostly yeast but I'm just not sure. There are about 2 inches of it in a 1.5 quart mason jar. The original yeast was Wyeast Bohemian Pilsner, sorry forgot the #.
So, does lager yeast appear like ale yeast when rinsing?
Any problem with using the whole slurry (which may include trub) in another brew? My intent was to save this to brew next week without a starter.
