I don’t have time to get to the brew shop before this weekend, and I’d like to brew this weekend. So, I was just planning on grabbing a couple packs of 1056 instead of making a starter. But, Mr. Malty says I still need a starter with two packs.
So, is it OK to pitch two packs into, say, a 1/2 liter starter? I’d want this small volume because I wouldn’t have time to decant, but I’m not sure if there’s some sort of drawback to adding a ton of yeast to a small volume of wort.
