I really didnt plan ahead but, I have a stout with Wyeast 1084 going right now. I want to use the cake again for another batch but obviously I'll be going from dark to light which is not ideal. How much do you figure its going to matter if I make say a red ale or something?

it wont matter. i save my yeast cakes in bottles with a little clear water and pitch them into different brews with no difference. now if youre saving a lot of the leftover beer with your yeast cake, you might have an issue.
ill keep my money, guns, freedom, and can keep the change.

You like fishsticks, what are you, a gay fish?
