You did the right thing, and it was doing the right thing. The only problem
is that "high krausen" for such a small volume is not very high.

To actually culture from a bottle, all you need to do is pour the yeast
slurry from the bottom into an 8 ounce bottle (for example, I use a baby
bottle) of wort. Let it go 3 or 4 days, until the bubbles on top slow
down and there is a bit of sediment on the bottom. Then make up a quart
of wort and pour this into it. Let that go for 3-5 days and you're ready
to pitch into 5 gallons. Each time you are bring the quantity of yeast
up by 20 times, roughly.
