Default Multi step yeast starter questions

After the first step and before decanting is it ok to cool for yeast to drop out of suspension?

If yes, how low of a temp?

Sure it's fine to cool the starter once its finished fermenting. Just don't freeze it

Its a 1L starter with a smack pack of wyeast. Its been 48 hours, is that ample time to finish fermenting?

It's probably done. You can throw it in the fridge to compact the yeast then decant then do your step up

The starter will begin to clear naturally once it's finished fermenting, but if you're in a hurry then just toss it in the fridge.

Fridge wont harm it. I did a 3 step starter for some Lager and had no issues....
