That makes sense, I've been having trouble with the 3-piece airlock sucking back air and star-san because of the fluctuating temperature. What do you use for a starter vessel? What about closure? (airlock, foam, foil, totally sealed?) I've got a gallon jug 1/3 full cause I'm planning to double the amount of wort in a few days so I wanted the extra room. There's a lot of head space and air in there.
Also do I just dump new on top of the pellicle or siphon into and out of the jug from under it?
Thanks for the help
