So I'm brewing tomorrow. I put a 1.5 L starter of 1318 last night on the stir plate. I came home from work a while ago and see that it's past high krausen. Is there anything I should do before I pitch tomorrow afternoon or am I ok.

when that happens to me, I leave mine at ambient temps for 12-24 hrs(per Chris White) and then crash in kegerator to decant. Then I add about 6-8 oz of fresh wort and it's at krausen stage in 1 or 2 hrs and then oxygen and pitch.
