I would just give the yeasties more wort, sounds like you've woken them up, that's all you need for them to take off.

Cool! I read what you wrote earlier about the strength of the wort...How much should I make up for this round of feeding?

And I plan on drinking one of the stouts tonight...I'd hate to just rinse out the good stuff....Should I get ready to start a seperate harvest with it? I've got plenty of dme...

If you're at 2 cups (16 oz), I would bump it up to at least 1 quart, but you would be fine going up to 1/2 gallon. As far as the other bottle, I would start a separate starter for that, just in case those yeast aren't viable or you get an infection etc. From my days in the lab, I've learned it's always good to have a backup.

Thanks so much!

How much Dme per quart of water?

This is my first time harvesting so this is all n00bism to me.

My rule of thumb for a 1.040 starter is 1 oz. of DME per 1 cup of water, so 4 oz. per quart.

Can't believe I just made the common mistake of confusing fluid ounces with ounces by weight... In my defense, I hadn't finished my coffee. I've been using a scale for so long I don't even think about measuring out dry ingredients by volume. My usual ratio is the same as Professor Frink's - 1oz (by weight) DME per cup of water.

Is it possible to propogate yeast from a bottle without the help of a stirplate? I've got a couple bombers of dead guy with some sediment and i've been wanting to try. Is it even worth it without a stirplate?

Sure, I did mine without a stirplate.

Yah you just need to be diligent about stirring them for the first few hours/days.
