Hi guys! Since I've got ~20kg of ripe bananas for free, I thought with my brew-friend to give a shot to Yooper's banana wine. We are planning to do a 50lt batch [around 10 gal] but we only have a package of 5g Lalvin EC-1118.
Obviously I don't think that it will be sufficient to pitch, but since we bought it online, from the uk, and it took three weeks to arrive, we were thinking of a way to reproduce the yeasts, like rehydratate it and the make a starter... Good idea or bad idea? I've read something on here, but it just confused me a lot... And if we can make the starter, what should we put in it? Some light DME? Thanks in advance to whoever knows more than us
