Situation - A friend prematurely activated the smack pack for his Belgiun Tripel. He doesn’t have a yeast starter or a starter kit.
Can he brew a high gravity Tripel without a yeast starter and what are the upside and downside of that?
Should he take the yeast as a loss, order new yeast along with a starter kit?
Can he get some additional dry yeast in time (before the smack pack is no good) and just add some extra yeast?
