Thanks BeerGolf-
I think I will all the rest again just to see-
My last one was a Belgian triple- MY LHS said one vial was enough, when I didn't see any activity - I posted my concern on this forum - all said it was under pitched.
That what started my researching and using charts like Mr. Malty- obviously way under pitched- so on to doing starters.

When I asked my LHS if I should have pitched two vials, they said it might have put in sugar shock, but I read a study where a guy purposely over pitched- all that happened was that the beer was a little less flavorful.

So- anyways glad I got into the starter thing- I guess i can you them even in low gravity beers?
Again thanks for the help!!
Cheers

They seriously said "Sugarshock"? I'm thinking there has to be a lot of jokes out there, but right now I can't think of any....
