What did you mean when you say you decant your starter? Iíve not heard of this.

Cold crash, let the yeast settle out, pour off 90% or more of the liquid, resuspend the yeast, and pitch that resuspension.

Thanks. So stick it in fridge overnight after say 24-48 hours of propagation then pour off liquid? I hate diluting my beer with a starter so this is good to hear. Iíve started just using multiple ístraight to wortí white labs vials for my big beers but at £7 ($10) a pop its a cost Iíd rather avoid if possible.
