Just say "no" to yeast rinsing (a.k.a. yeast washing in amatuer brewer terms)

For years I have used a stir plate and have normally ferment out then 10 mins into the boil I take out around 1lt of wort crash cool and after pouring off the spent wort from the starter I add the cooled wort and return to the stir plate. By the time the main wort is ready for pitching the "2nd" stater is fairly active and once pitched is always up and running after several hours.

I've just been using the jam jar of trub method since I saw a thread on here about it. It's cheap easy and simple 👍
God knows how many generations my us-05 and Wyeast Kolsch are??
I chose not to worry about the science of brewing simply because I'm not that academicly minded.
Jars of trub work great IMHO.. I get good feed back from comps, beer swaps and the misses so I'm happy.
Fully respect the guys and girls who like a bit more data🙌
The brewers of old didn't have a lot of this info and they could still sling a decent pint together 👍
