Do you always let your starter sit unstirred several minutes prior to pitching? I always leave the plate on until right when I pitch to keep everything suspended. Is there a difference or just a preference?

There is a difference. I decant all of the nasty beer off the top of the yeast. That has been oxidized and fermented at about 75-80F, and I prefer it not go into my final beer.

You could get a sneak taste of your beer if you just bottled a 22 from your starter. you could be drinking that while you transfer to dry hop. I realize there would probably be flaws from the high ferment temp and oxygen but still.....

8 hours after pitching, the blow off is bubbling.

I will have another brewcast coming in three weeks time... I hope.

Not sure what I am going to brew, maybe RE-brew the Spiced Holiday Ale

Hope to see you there...

I will do my best to get a thread up in plenty of time to get that info out to you.

I may take recipe requests... since I can build nearly anything with what I have here, that may be pretty cool!
