leave it there and wait for it to fall back into the beer (and settle at the bottom). no need to remove it. if anything, you'd be creating another opportunity for infection.

Love this yeast, one of my go to's for English beers.

To answer your last question, if you're not harvesting it, just leave it like SweetCell said, there's no need to mess with it. It'll sit up on the top longer than alot of yeasts, but the wait is worth it for sure.

This is my next yeast that I'll harvest the cake and use for successive beers on my quest to calm my obsession with British ales.... I've done the 1469, now doing wlp002, and 1318 is up next.

Cheers
You don't skim, BUT...

If you are doing an open fermentation, either rack from under the krausen to another closed and sanitized container or skim and close the container. I usually use buckets, so I get rid of the last skim and close the lid if I'm doing an open fermentation. I don't let it fall into the beer because there is all kind of assorted crap in it, mostly dust particles. There's a BrewingTV episode where they show someone using a fish gutter as an oipen fermntation vessel and he, imho, racks way too late from it since he waits until the krausen has fallen.

You don't need skim/transfer if you use the standard airlock + carboy/bucket method since there's no way for dust to get on the krausen. You might want to rack from underneath the krausen anyway if you want to package since I've had ferments with 1318 which still had a cheesy, hard cap on them after three weeks.
