I have a quick question I was hoping someone could help me with. I made a yeast starter yesterday afternoon and it was kind of a train wreck just because I had a boil over. I do not have a stir plate so as often as I can remember I give the starter a swirl. I am brewing tomorrow but every time I check on it, it seems the yeast has just settled to the bottom of the container and there is no visible sign of any fermentation. When I swirl the yeast is very chunky.

Is this normal ? Thanks in advance.

When using a stir plate do you set it on slow or set it fast so you have a vortex the whole time?

I set mine on low just so the magnet doesn't get tossed. You really only need a dimple in the surface on the liquid, not a raging vortex.

Why not just boil in the flask. No need to pull out the starsan.
Love your site.

Nice! Thanks for posting this, I've been overwhelmed with the crazy numbers and terms thrown around for making starters...it really helps to just see someone do the process and use layman's terms.
