In answer to questions from a few days ago, the way I tell when
to pitch from my yeast starter is by looking for bubbles.

There is usually only a very small layer of bubbles on the surface,
but if you look close at the "beer", you'll see a lot of bubbles
rising through the beer to the surface. Then you know the yeast
is very active. Of course if you use a dark bottle, then it
will be harder to tell. Maybe hold it up to a window.
