If you're making a lager, you should be pitching around 45F. Don't pitch a room temp starter
into wort this cold...that may cause thermal shock to the yeast.Best practice would be to make
a (bigger) s...

To each his own, but I'm left asking...why???This is a hobby in which a great deal of the
pleasure comes from the careful crafting of a unique product, and all the different equipment,
