1.074 is the SG. Looks like I need a 4 L starter, so we have agreed to make one apiece instead

A friend and I are going to make a 10-gallon batch. Can I make a big enough starter for our big

I am moving up from a 4 gallon pot to an 8 gallon, so can do all-grain now. But I need a lauer
tun. Can I turn my 4-gallon pot into a lauter tun? Details? Thanks!

Yes, ResumeMan, that's what I was thinking when I added the OO. I was also concerned that, at

I promise, no more foolin' with it. I took a gravity reading last night, and it had reached the
target of 1.014. Tasted great, too, much better than before I added the extra DME. I'll leave
it for ano...

No explosions after 2 days (and very little visible activity), so I guess, knock wood,
everything is OK.

Cool--thanks! I will just wait and take a gravity reading this weekend to see where things are.
I hope the yeast are busier than they seem to be--that they are quietly working away.
