On Saturday I made a 1.5L starter at 1.037 using DME and WY1450. However, something came up on Sunday and I've had to postpone my brew till next weekend. Sunday night I put the flask with foil cap in the fridge to hopefully save it. About 26hrs on the stir-plate before going in the fridge. I'm thinking the yeast will settle, I can decant most of the liquid, and then pitch when I brew this coming weekend (6-7days in the fridge). Good plan or am I missing something? Concerning keeping the starter sanitary, should I stick with the foil cap or something more air-tight on the flask? And lastly, do I need to warm the starter up before pitching? Maybe pull it out when I start brewing and sit at room temp for a few hours. Or just throw it in the wort straight from the fridge (3-6C)?
