    I'll be brewing a SNPA clone tomorrow. I have some harvested 1056 that has no hop debris. It's probably a couple months old and has been in my fridge waiting patiently.

    I brewed a blonde last weekend and saved about a pint of wort. Would it be ok if I used that wort for my starter? I don't have enough DME to make a full starter & don't have time to get to the LHBS.

    The wort should be fine for use as a starter. Generally starters aren't hopped but you're growing yeast so it should work nicely and provide a bit of protection against bacteria.

    Would be fine but I would reheat that wort and re-cool to pitch temp to reduce the possibility of contamination.

    Thanks for the replies. I do plan on re-heating then cooling before pitching.
