I figured a more generic flavor brew like a cream ale would be a good cake to try this on. I like my IPA with a little sweetness so I would mind if some of the honey malt comes through. I'm not a fan of starters. Maybe it's because I don't gave a bung/airlock for my flask but I never know if anything is happening. Stepping up two, three times? Seems like a weeks worth of attention, I've gone to dry yeast, my understanding is that there's actually more yeast than liquid?
