Out of curiousity mainly, I am going to try my hand at making a starter using liquid yeast. I am brewing the Irish red ale next weekend hopefully.
I ordered the omega ale yeast II ( as it was one of the choices with the extract kit). I also ordered the 1 liter starter kit that comes with some fast pitch canned wort. I figured it may help as I need to make the starter the day before brew day I think.
The OG on this beer is not too high so I am hoping my 1 liter starter will be enough. I will look into the pitch calculator to see if I can figure it out. I can read about this stuff for days, but it doesn’t sink in for me until the rubber meets the road and I have to actually do it.
As always I am open to any suggestions, words of wisdom etc.
This hobby has really become consuming. I think ups is going to request I build a receiving dock at my house.
