Starters in the Jugs for Wednesday

Made two 1L starters tonight. The back one is a WLP008 East Coast Ale for a Grand Armory Weezin’ the Juice near beer attempt and the front is a harvested US-05 for our first AG “Big Mo” MO/Mosaic beer. The Big Mo is a 9.5% deal and the Weezin’ is around 6.1%. Just put them in a few minutes ago.

Nice! Good move harvesting for a 9.5% beer. You’ll need plenty of healthy yeast.

If the starter doesn’t look great by Wednesday I also have some packets of 05 as my backup plan. :wink:

And 22 hours later:
008 is making cells and the 05 is looking good too!
Ain’t skeerd…
