Yeah 24 hours shouldn't hurt anything. Take out 10% of the wort and let the yeast grow for 24
hrs, then throw it into the rest

Was it still dropping when you racked to secondary? Is this an extract batch?

You can do a 4-5 liter starter then store 3/4 of it and do another starter with the remainder.
That should get you in the ballpark of how much you'll need for 10 gallons.

I use a Carlo Rossi wine jug. The bottom is a bit flatter than apple cider jugs that I've seen.

This is common practice for German breweries performing a decoction mash. Go for it!

Check your thermometer too. Make sure it's correct for freezing and boiling

You might want to remove 2/3 to 3/4 of the old yeast so you don't over pitch.
