Splitting 5gal batch for 2 yeast strains: Need Starter?
The title should explain it.
I'm splitting my 5 gallon Amarillo/Maris Otter SMASH into two 2.5gallon batches. I'll be using two different yeast strains for each. Would a starter be necessary when using Wyeast smack packs? I would rather make starters to help out fermentation lag and to make sure the yeast is good. I don't want to overpitch.
