I made my first ever yeast starter last week in anticipation of my saison brew over the weekend. It was Chris's suggestion that I create a starter for his yeast strain and I was curious to try one.
It was far simpler to do than I imagined. In fact all it involved, really, was dumping the contents of the yeast vial into a jug full of wort.
In practice, it was a touch more involved than that. But not much.
With a little help from a friend, I was directed to a website with a yeast calculator....
