Planning on a 10g Oktoberfest in a couple weeks.
I posted a question a week or so ago and Shadetree recommended to do this:viewtopic.php?f=1&t=116955&start=15#p1023217
I have a single smack pack of 3711 sitting in my fridge.
If I brew a 2.5 gallon batch at 1.040 and ferment at room temp, will that single pack make enough yeast to fuel 10 gallons of lager?
Secondarily, if it’s just starter wort, is there need for a 60 minute boil? Can’t I just bring the water to a boil, add enough DME to hit 1.040, boil for a few minutes and then cool, pitch and ferment?
