This is exactly how I did it, if you see a problem please let me know.
Thursday night I started the starter following a tutorial on you tube.
2 cups of water to 1/2 cup extra light DME. Boiled for 10 minutes and cooled.
Added to flask and pitched yeast.
Hadnt finished building the stir plate yet so everytime I would walk by it I would stir the starter.
Due to boiling I lost some water so my level was a little below 400ml.
I brewed last night. I stirred the starter to make sure everything was in suspension.
It was still bubbling a little so I know it was active.
I poured the entire thing into the wort. This morning, maybe 7 hours after adding the yeast I am already seeing a good bit of activity.
Did I do anything wrong? Is there something I could of done better? Will I have off flavors do to how I added the yeast without cold crashing it and decanting most of the liquid?
Also, the starter stayed at around 65 degrees as I keep my place cold.
