Gentle man- we have lift off!!! bubbling away this morning!!

I have learned allot from this thread and this forum!!!
As most have stated here, and a lessoned learned for me- High Gravity Beers need or should have a starter. Youtube has allot of information as well as white labs on the the topic of how to make a starter. Or at least throw two tubes of yeast in!!
There is allot about stir plates there as well- here in one I liked: http://www.stirstarters.com/index.html
So cheers to those who contributed to this thread & to all the help one can get on this forum!!

Or be simple and use rehydrated dry yeast and save yourself money and headaches. I quit wasting time on liquid yeast awhile back. Not saying its not good but why work harder instead of smarter, meaning making starters, stirplates,spending 2 or 3X the money, making that wheel roll a little better, etc?? I have superb results with the properly pitched amounts of dry yeast.

Once you get more into brewing do what you want but for those starting out dry yeast is the ONLY way to go.

My (and others here) stirstarter required some tweaking. The magnets weren't strong enough and kept tossing the stir bar. Got a couple rare earth magnets from Ace and added it to the ones provided. Keep in mind if you have issues. They may have corrected this

Maybe the the a little spent might be worth it?

OK- so let me see if I got this right-
My friend bought me Brewer's Best Belgian Dark Strong!!
It has a OG of 1.079 max-
When I go to Mr. Malty- and type the specs.(Mr. Malty's Pitching Rate Calculator™ ) Mr. Malty tells me the pitch rate should be 2.8 vials or three to even it up. http://www.mrmalty.com/calc/calc.html
So then, I would add at least two of the WLP500 or WLP530- Right?
