I've had a 1.5l starter of Scottish Wyeast in fridge for a month decanting. I got sick last time I was supposed to make a Scottish 70. I plan on brewing this wknd. Something tells me just decanting and pitching isn't the best way to go. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

It will most likely be fine to use as is but you can always play it safe and make another starter with it, just to be sure.

I have let em set that long....if your sanitation was good you should be fine. Or as was said, to be 100% sure another starter.
