So the take away from all of this:

Cold Crash your yeast at High Kraussen (the recommended time at which to pitch your starter as far as I have ever heard), decant, and pitch.

This makes sure that when you put your yeast into a dormant state that the cells are at their most viable point and that it hasn't run out of Big Macs/Food so none have started dying off. This is assuming that you dont want what is left over from the wort youused for your starter. Personally I use wort from my the actual brew im making the starter for and let my brew sit for 24 hours without yeast in it. Slightly risky for contamination pruposes, but I have had no issues.

Yes, of course that is how we all feel except King of Cascades. He says that there is a 50% die-off in two days, and that there is a source out there that has scientifically shown this to be true. He will submit some evidence to support this soon.

Oh thanks, I understand now, I must have missed that somewhere.

That is interesting though, I would imagine you could have a 50% die off if you don't take care of the little guys but otherwise I cannot wait to see the article
