Default Yeast Cake

Just got done raking into my secondary. I plan on making another beer in a few days and want to use the yeast cake. I made an altbier and will be making a stout. I put an airlock on it and put it in a corner. Is there anything else I should do to it?
Thank you in advance.

Sanitize some jars and get those yeasties in there and refrigerate them. Then when you've read up on how to wash them you can reuse them and make that next beer.

And unless you want to sleep on the driveway, don't ever refer to your SWMBO as "the old yeast cake"
