Default Yeast for a helles bock.

So im brewing a Helles Bock using the white labs southern german lager yeast. Ive heard that i need a much higher cell count than with an ale. So if i was doing an initial 2L starter, how many times should i step it up after the initial starter to get the correct cell count that i need for this bock with an OG of 1.067? Also when i do step up, should it be another 2L of wort? Thanks for the help people!

www.brewersfriend.com has a tool that will give you stepped starter amounts based on yeast manufacture date, beer type, and original gravity. All these things play a part in how big of a starter you'll need. I would suggest going there (most people on this forum will use that tool to help you anyway...)
