Default When to Pitch a Starter?

I started a starter yesterday about this time, and right now it's really foamy. Should I pitch it now, or wait for the krauzen to subside?

IT'S ALIVE!!!!

Pitch it.

The reason, OK, one of the reasons, for a starter is to ENSURE your yeast is alive. You've proven that.
