Default Yeast

Ok... I decanted the starter a few hours ago and have been sitting at room temp. What's the best way to get it from the flask to the wort??? Seems the sludge may take forever to travel down the flask.

Try to leave a small amount of starter wort in the flask when decanting. Then you can swirl it into the starter to make it thinner. This makes the yeast slurry a little thinner and easier to pour. If the yeast is too thick, then add a half cup or so of wort to the starter to thin out the yeast prior to pitching.
