I've been doing some reading, and I have a question or two about starters.
If I'm using a tube, the recommendation I've read is to use a tube in 2 liters of water and .50 lbs. of DME.
Does this sound like a good practice? And what about a smack pack? Same ratio?
I'm of the mind now that you should always use a starter, and I want to get the best pitch I can.
