Yeast starter sugar for beer


I have a lot of left over beer sugar b/c I have been kegging for quite some time. Can I use this sugar for a Yeast starter?



You could, but it can negatively impact the yeast to feed them simple sugar and inhibit the grown yeast’s ability to process the more-complex sugars in wort. Make a Tripel with 20% sugar instead.

Could you explain that process? the Tripel?

Belgian Ale. 80% Pils malt, 20% sugar. WY3787 is the classic yeast. Or use 3522 and make a Belgian IPA, same grist, just lots more hops.
