Thanks for the answers. I think I'm stuck pitching it at this point. As far as cold crashing, are you letting the slurry come back up to temp before you pitch?

I always decant.  I never let the slurry warm up before pitching....right out of the fridge and into the beer.  I haven't noticed any effect on lag time or yeast performance from doing that.
