You don't need a starter for that gravity with s05. Rehydrate correctly per instructions with ore oiled water and pitch. It looks fine to me, but smell it.

Notty at my LHBS is $5.25! I've also read about leaving a little beer on top, but I like washing and splitting into 4-5 sanitized jars.

YOOPER, that is my logic as well. I like the beer that I make from dry yeasts and now that the price is what it is, why not get 4 pitches from a pack?
