It appears I have made a huge mistake when I made my second starter yesterday. I have a stir plate. I boiled four cups of water and mixed in a cup of DME. After adding to my flask and cooling, I pitched in two vials of White Labs 001 and put on the stir plate. When I woke up this morning I had a huge mess on the counter.
I know realize that my mistake was only using a 1000ml flask. The first starter I had ever made didn’t foam up any.
Is the foaming normal?
How long will it take to stop? Can I cold crash and decant some of the wort and put it back on the plate even though its only been 24 hours?
Will the yeast still be viable or has it been contaminated?
Thanks for any info.
