Default Holy starter krausen, Batman!



Talk about top-cropping! Shortly after this picture was taken, I swirled the bottle to get the yeast back into suspension. As a newb, I have a couple questions...

Should I crash-cool it to get the yeast to drop before I pitch it?

Also, can I keep some of the yeast in the starter bottle after I pitch, and then step it back up with more wort?

to answer your questions:

yes you can crash and pour if you want to...

and yes you could only pitch some of it and make a new starter with the rest.
