Pliny The Elder Brew Day Tomorrow - Yeast Question

IIRC, you can make and pitch a started in as little as 18 hours, according to "Yeast" by White and Zainasheff.  "Most starters ... reach their maximum cell density within 12 to 18 hours.Low iunnoculation rates and low temps can extend that time out to 36 hours or more, but the bulk of the growth will be complete within 24 hours."  Make it now, pitch in 24 hours.

That doesn't give you time to decant the spent wort, though.

True, but you could just pitch the whole thing. (Pause for the purists to gasp in dismay) Plain DME with no hops doesn't really add a whole lot of flavor change...Something to do in a pinch. I would wait a day or two and brew when the starter is ready...

I just transferred one to my secondary. OG 1.086  1.015 in to the secondary that makes a ABV  9.45. It was in the primary 16 days. Used 2 packs of rehydrated US-05. It tastes pretty good and it's not even dry hopped yet.
