Saving Yeast Yeast to Pitch on the Cake

I brewed an ipa a week ago OG @1.068 added plenty of yeast and had a grea fermentation. I wanted to pitch an imperial porter on it this weekend but events of fellow brewers is not allowing. So i was wondering what would be the best way to save the yeast for a week in a glass carboy to pitch onto. The garage is at 38-40, maybe covered with a blanket and airlock. The thing is I have 4 of the carboys we brew 22 gallon batches so we definatly want to keep this yeast.

Thanks for any responses.

Not sure about saving it in a carboy, never done that before.
I did just started washing my yeast and saving it in mason jars in the fridge and while it is a bit of time and effort it seems to be worth it. Just pitched for the first time using that method and the fermentation is going well.

Since you can’t use it immediately, I’d recommend putting into a smaller container that you can add water to so the cake is protected. In this process, you might as well rinse it once.
