I just did this today and it worked awesomely. Now I have 4 jars of bell's house strain sitting in my fridge waiting for my two-hearted clone

I have about that much yeast in mine too. How many times do you think I'll need to step it up before pitching.

I would probably be doing a pint of water with 1 cup DME for first step. Then a quart maybe or would pint be enough?

The yeast at the bottom of those jars is about the same density as a tube of White Labs yeast, so you can kind of judge from that. Depends on what beer I'm going to ferment, but something like a middle of the road pale ale will probably just need a starter, and not need stepped up first.

Quick question about using Mr Malty's pitching calculator with some washed yeast using this method, I washed some yeast back at the beginning of May, when entering the values in the calculator do I have to use this date as the "Production Date"?

Yep, you are correct.

If by some unfortunate series of events you no longer have any, I plan on having some onhand for the foreseeable future, so no worries.

Are you guys pouring the yeast from the fermenter into your large mason jar, or are you using a syphon??
- thanks!
