I have had this yeast in the fridge for about two months. It is the washed yeast cake from a pale ale. It still smells good. I'm not sure about those mounds on the cake. I am brewing tomorrow, I plan on using about half of it, there is a lot of yeast there. That is a gallon growler with an inch of yeast on the bottom so I don't think I need all of it. If it is still good should I make a starter to get it going a little or just let it warm up and pitch. I always make a starter but I know there is more than enough yeast there. Any advise would be apriciated.

Kind of hard to tell from the picture but if you used proper yeast washing techniques you should be fine. Since it is 2 months old I would definitely make a starter.
