Just did an oyster stout using White labs london ale yeast. think I could use the yeast again for something like a pale ale or ESB? will the oatstout oysters carry over?

Oyster stout. I think i might just make another starter.I made a 1.5l london ale starter about 3.5 weeks ago. After it settled down i put it in the fridge. I was planning on brewing tomorrow. Should I Make another starter, start over, or just decant and pitch?
wouldn't hurt to make another starter. what are you brewing?
Having a little fermenting going on helps carry away oxygen trapped in the hops (yes, there's o2 even in pellets). too much fermentation carries away flavor/aroma defeating the purpose of dry hopping. i put my hops in the primaryfor a week or so and rack to another carboy for a day or so if I'm kegging, so I dont suck any hops up the dip tube.
Some guys wait until fermentation is completely over. My guess is that the timing there doesn't matter much.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cake_(band)oh good, your subject line made me think you were going a different direction.It made me want to experiment... Next time I have left over cake I know what I'm going to make a 1 gallon batch of!
I'm still trying to figure out how to add cake as in ingredient in BeerSmith... (I guess it'd be a Specialty Grain?)
