I hqve a 3/4 gal starter that has been fermenting for about 36 hours, and had a large amount of blow off and I am thinking about cold crashing it for a brew tomorrow my question is....... Will 8 hours of crashing be long enough to settleeverything out? I do not want to pour that much starter wort into my brew.

I would say the 8hrs is better than not doing it at all, So I would do it.
Next:Smoked Pilsner.
Primary:Belgian Red, American Stout w/Roeselare
On Tap:Pale Ale, English Bitter
Aging: Imperial Oatmeal Stout on Vanilla beans.
