still cloudy. what do folks think, will i really be able to detect any starter off flavors from a 2L starter in a big (about 1.082 OG) belgian dark strong? i really don't want to leave the starter in the fridge any longer, i feel like more negative problems could result from that than just pitching the whole thing.

If there's a fair bit of yeast cake, I would probably decant off most of the cloudy liquid, leaving about as much as there is cake to re-suspend in. Then I'd pitch that. Definitely going to want to let it get up to pitching temps before you do, though.

perhaps this is erroneous thinking, but aren't you then decanting off the yeast that might help it finish off?
