Right on. I've got 2 1500 mL starters going as we speak, from one vial of WLP810. I'll step both up with 1 L each on Thursday (after cold crashing over night and decanting). I'll then let them go until Sunday, cold crash over night, then decant and pitch on Monday.
Thanks to everyone for the help. Cheers!
