Brewing an APA tomorrow, made a 1L starter with WLP001 last night. Should I chill and decant that for a 5 gallon batch, or just pitch the entire starter in? I dont want to change the flavor of the beer, but I do want a great fermentation. Also, if I do decant after chilling, do I need to let the slurry come back to room temp prior to pitching?
Thanks in advance for your input.
