    Next time, just try doing a little less time. For this one you'll just need a bigger starter.
    No bid deal. :mug:Just curious, how does less settling time equal more yeast? Seems
    counterintuitive.

    Just pitch the whole thing. if it has been less than 18 or so hours on the plate it may hurt
    your results to crash it.I went ahead and crashed it. It took off in about four hours after
    pitching and ha...

    get a flashlight and look carefully. You will see tiny bubbles rising. If you cold crash after
    18-24 hours you should see a good layer of yeast and some trub on the bottom of the flask. I
    usually get ...

    If the starter isn't quite done does it hurt to go ahead and put it in the fridge to drop the

    Have never used a stir plate before but finally built one and am planning a brew this weekend.

    Thanks. Should I leave it on the stir plate for 36 hours?

    I am planning to brew in a week. I need to do a starter as I have a wyeast pack that is a few
    months old plus brewing an IPA above 1.060. I have the time to get the starter going today but
    probably no...

    Probably left over krausen from fermentation that didn't drop out if suspension. I've had it in
    several of my beers over the years. It will be fine. Just try to leave it behind when racking.
