Thanks. I'll do that tonight or tomorrow then. When you skim the yeast and put in a sanitized jar, do you cover with spring or distilled water like you were washing the yeast? Not sure I'll do this bc I'm not sure when I'll brew another hefe. I've got 10 gallons already. How long have you kept it? If I don't use it then it becomes a whole mystery of how much is viable out of a scum and what size starter yada yada.
