I was wanting to make some 1.035 starter wort. And I wanted to make it from american 2 row. I know this can be done with out any issue. But my question is that I wanted to make 3 gallons or so, to have on hand for later starter. Is this a dumb idea. I was thinking of freezing it in multiple smaller containers, 0.5gals each. And then just removing them and thawing them and then pitching the yeast for the starter.
Two main questions:
- Can I freeze the wort? Will it still be ok when thawed?
- Should I boil before I freeze? Or should I wait until it thaws and then boil>chill>pitch the day I make the starter?
