Sealing it with sticky fresh wort sounds like a mess and a mold party invitation.

I've got 3 batches out of this yeast at this point. I'm a fan, but it definitely finishes on the dry spicy side. Pick a sweet or floral note to bounce that off of and you can not fail.

You could get a bit of sour out of that. Pitch Wyeast 5335 or WL677 on it. I wouldn't pitch anymore yeast because you're running out of food.
