I want to make a big RIS. I have read that you should use a yeast starter for a high grav stout. What is the proper way to do this and is this all the yeast that must be used? Thanks
Good idea to do a forum search; there are several excellent threads on this.
Read Mr.Malty's instructions. I would probably make a smaller beer first and the use the yeast from that batch for the RIS.
^^agree with mr malty! give the starter at least 24 to 48 hours head start.

The beatings will continue until morale improves!
You can check out this article in the homebrew wiki. It's what I used to get...um...started.
I am shocked...shocked...to find there is brewing going on here!
