If you're using liquid yeast, you should almost always make a starter. I switched to mainly dry yeast because I'm rather lazy and would forget to make the starter. I typically do a packet and a half of dry yeast for every batch. Yesterday I reused some slurry that I racked a beer off of. Going to try and time my batches so I can keep doing that. Saves some money per batch.

Mr. Malty's Pitching Rate Calculator is very useful:

if the gravity is the same 3 times you SHOULD be ok to bottle.
BUT
ive learned patience is everything.
get used to the 1-2-3 rule..
1 week in the primary(plastic bucket)
2 weeks in carboy
3 weeks (at 65-70 degrees) in bottles

i know it sux but its worth the wait
