I used to warm the starter to room temp. Then I read an article that indicated that taking the starter directly from the fridge and pitching it was preferable. I have had great success with my beers when I have pitched the starter directly from the fridge. I normally don't bother to decant and this has not made any difference either. I would suggest pitching cold a few times and comparing the results with pitching at room temp and deciding for yourself. Montanaandy
