Default Lotta Starter

Brewing 36 Gallons tomorrow and it almost seems like the yeast preparation has taken more time than the brewing will. Started on Saturday with a 3 Gallon mash to make the wort for the starters... I actually have the expert assistance of the wife to do these things for me, so I suppose it was pretty easy for me in actuality.

The wort was a little low in gravity and it came in at 1.030.

Started a 4 liter starter for 15 gallons of Kolsch on stir plate on Sunday and ran for 24.

Did the same for a Hefe on Monday.

Finished the process on Tuesday for a Helles.

I upped the volume of starter from about 3.5 liter to 4 because the wort was a little low in gravity.

Have everything in the fridge to crash the yeast for minimum 24 hours before pitching tomorrow.


I think it's too bad that everybody's decided to turn on drugs, I don't think drugs are the problem. Crime is the problem. Cops are the problem. Money's the problem. But drugs are just drugs.
