Step starter. Usually 1L, refrigerate and discard spent wort, then step up to 4L.

If I wanted to, instead of pitching on to a yeast cake as soon as it becomes available, save a yeast cake to pitch into wort later (say 3 weeks later), what's a good, safe method of saving it for later?
Will I be able to figure out roughly how many cells I'll have, or how much I need to save to have roughly the amount of cells I'll need?
For reference I'll be pitching approx 425bn cells WLP838 into a dunkel. When I move that dunkel to secondary I'd like to salvage enough yeast to be able to pitch approx 425bn cells into a schwarzbier 3 weeks later.

WTF is wrong with my frozen yeast? Why is it trying to escape?
50% yeast slurry was added to the tube then a 30% glycerine mix was added to make up the other 50%
The tube was then shaken, lid cracked and placed in the fridge for 2 days. Then transfered to the freezer with the rest of my yeast.
The tubes were stored upright.

Thought i may have been. Top of tube has obviously frozen before the bottom. The top of the tube was very close to the fan
