    The stir plate should be loosely covered for air movement. I use a aquarium pump to provide
    oxygen to the propagation process inside the flask covered with a sandwich baggy.Bad things

    Swampass, Lagers are done with very powdery yeasts and take a long time to flocculate. The
    majors want the yeast to stay in suspension and they filter when ready so it is not a problem
    for them. When ...

    If you grow yeast what are the byproducts and how is aerobic and anaerobic propagation
    different. Simple answer is don't pitch your starter. Sure you can get away with doing it but
    why. If your beers ...

    A starter is used to grow yeast and in the process all sort of things will develop in the
    remaining fluid and these are not the best for beer. That is why you should wash your slurry if
    going to re-pi...

    Chris White has nailed it. This book is a must if you are any kind of brewer. I have made the
    statement in my talks at several home brew clubs that if you do not have a stir plate you are
    not a seriou...

    The yeast book is excellent reference. My copy was signed at the WBF after the GABF. I wished
    he had spent more time on aerobic propagation. The starter thing is one of good practice. 99%
    of the time ...

    To kanzimonson - you have to be kidding - Happy New Year and keep on pitching your starter.bobz

    I respect your opinion but you are taking a chance. Starters are notorious for off flavors and
    other things. Pitching starter is not good practice. The complexities of yeast propagation are
    enormous. ...

    Never ever pitch your starter. Pitch only the slurry. Off flavors and other bad things can
    happen.bobz
