Should I just let it warm to room temp the day of pitching or should I made another starter to get it going again? If I make another starter just to help start the activity should I make the SG lower than the typical 1.035-1.040? I was thinking of shooting for 1.020 but I may be overthinking this process.
thanks for any info.
Your first starter was to propagate the yeast to appropriate cell count. If you need a 1L starter, you're done. Just swirl up the settled yeast, bring to room temperature, and pitch. If you need a larger starter volume, now is the time to step it up. Use the same gravity, 1.040, just more volume.
