[quote=“dobe12”][quote=“grainbelt”][quote=“dobe12”]First… if you can’t make or aren’t ready for a starter, just go by another pack of yeast or a pack of dry yeast. Problem solved.
Second… don’t let others tell you what you should and shouldn’t brew. This is YOUR hobby and YOUR beer. Brew what you want, when you want, how you want. This forum is a great place to chat, learn, get advice, give advice, etc. But someone telling you not brew something until you’re ready is ridiculous.
Having said all this, learning to make starters IS a good idea, but don’t let that deter you from brewing this beer. Go buy a packet of dry yeast or another pack of wyeast and you’ll be fine. You’ll still make beer and you’ll still enjoy it.[/quote]
huh that post was on ignore…blah blah…it’s good advice, adding another packet of yeast may not even be enough dependent on gravity you may need 3 or 4 vials 25 bucks in yeast :shock: …
If every new brewer went and brewed imperial beers you would have a lot of #### beer plain and simple and a lot of new brewers scratching their heads on what they did wrong[/quote]
Well then it’s a good thing we have such seasoned pros as yourself on this forum to steer them in the right direction. :blah: [/quote]
