Pouring Wort onto Used Yeast Cake...
I've never done this before, but I'm planning on doing it this weekend. My question is, I've left the cake sitting in the carboy (sealed) since Sunday when I racked off of it...so would it be helpful to pour a small starter batch into the carboy the night before I brew? Or is this unnecessary? If it hadn't been 2 weeks since the original pitch, and it hadn't been sitting alone for a week, I might not be so concerned, but in terms of decreasing lag time as much as possible, wouldn't a small starter poured onto the cake the night before serve to jumpstart the cake? Or is this completely unnecessary?
