The reason I'm avoiding a starter is for one thing, Ive never made one before and another, I dont have any LME or DME to make one with... only honey which apparently isn't good enough... I also plan on brewing at 7am tomorrow which is in 11.5hrs
What's the OG, and what is the date on the package?
Edit- I see the OG, and that's a little high to go without a starter. Even Wyeast doesn't suggest just pitching it without a starter with that OG. However, if the yeast is superfresh, you may be able to get away with it. Make sure you aerate the wort like your life depended on it, to ensure good oxygen levels for the yeast to reproduce.
