Saving/freezing yeast

Unread post by grooves » Mon Jan 07, 2019 10:43 am

I'm having another go at freezing yeast. I have been taking samples from starters that I use for a brew. I make the starters in a erlenmeyer flask, and pour off 80% of the wort before swirling to suspend the remaining yeast. I was thinking there must be a better way to separate the dead yeast from the creamy live yeast and the wort. I'm thinking one of these might do the job -

Any thoughts?
