Okay. I'll just have to store the wort until it cools down enough. If I time it right, then I can pitch right when the wort gets at or very near the same temp as the starter (which should be 50ish deg).
Does it make a difference if the beer is ever so slightly cooled or warmed up after pitching? Or is there anything else related to lager starters/pitching that I should be aware of?
