lookin' good. you might consider just using sanitized foil on top of your starter and swirling it often to get good gas exchange. if you have the airlock on, no oxygen can get in... good luck with brewin!

What was your ratio of DME to water? I did a starter last brewday and mine seemed a bit bigger. Yours might just be better!

put 4oz of dme into a pint of water. thick, i know, but it took OFF! wow! about half hour after i pitched it, it started bubbling away! WOOOOOOOHOOOOO!

if you're going to put candi sugar into the mix, dont drop the bottle, then plunge your hand into the wort trying to get it......ouch......

Thor the Mighty 09-27-2009 01:14 AM
