Need to use my starter sooner than expected.
« on: April 24, 2010, 06:53:14 PM »
Hey guys! Looking for thoughts on this one. Last minute company coming in from out of town on Monday (my planned brew day) and I need to brew a batch tomorrow. I have a starter that I made on Thursday night and it seems to be finishing up from what I can tell. Do you think I should chill tonight, decant tomorrow and pitch. Or just pitch the whole thing and forget about decanting.  Thanks much!

If you put it in the fridge last night then you'll be fine.

Even if you brewed today and let the wort sit cool until tomorrow AM you would probably be ok.

I wonder what the OP did?  It might have been a good time/way to perk somebody's interest in homebrewing if he just pitched it while his company was there to observe....
