    Hello all, I was planning on brewing last friday but I had a few things get in the way. I made a starter on thursday and when I realized I couldn't brew on Friday, I put the starter in the fridge. I am planning on brewing tomorrow (Tuesday) and I was wondering how I should go about removing the yeast starter from the fridge? Leave it in until tomorrow? Take it out today? Add additional wort to revitalize the yeast? Thanks!

    I take it out of the fridge when I start my brew day and decant. By the time the day is over it will be at pitching temps.

    Ok, awesome. I figured that but I wanted to double check and make sure because I have never had to do that before.

    I do the same. Just pull it out of the fridge before you start your brew.

    Same and if you want to get them firing on the same wort like a mini warm up just before running on. 15 into the main boil I pull out some wort chill it to pitch temp then start them on that. En an hour or two later when your main batch is chilled to correct pitch temp you can throw in your prepped starter.
