So, I'm kinda a noob, I will be brewing my 5th extract batch on Saturday. I made a starter for it last night. Generally, what I have seen is people referring to is 1000 mL starters and 2000 mL starters. I have a 2000 mL starter kit from NB and have used it once before. In their instructions they say for a 1000 mL starter kit to mix 650 mL of water with a 1/2 cup of DME. The 2000 mL starter kit is simply double. It sounds like this will only be a "pint" starter as they describe it.
Is the 650 mL starter referred to generally as a 1000 mL starter? or do I actually need 1000 mL of water starting out? or a bit more to account for loss in the boil? According to a the recipe I made on beersmith, I need a 1 L starter, so I'm wondering if I should build this up a second time or if I'm good to pitch. The OG of the recipe is 1.043.
Also, if I need 1/2 cup of DME for 650 mL, how much would I use for 1000 mL 3/4 cup? Whats a good ratio as a rule of thumb?
