I spent all day yesterday brewing a Dunkelweizen, and had made a 1000 mL starter the day before.
Last night I tossed the starter in the fridge to separate out the yeast from the DME wort with the intention of throwing out the top layer and pitching just the yeast. So this morning I pulled it out of the fridge, threw away most of the wort, and placed the flask with my starter in the same temperature controlled environment that my wort is in.
When I get home from work I'll pitch the yeast, but the wort will have been sitting in my fermentor for about 24 - 26 hours. The lid is on and the airlock is in, it's sitting at about 62 F.
Any issues with this approach, especially around infection?
