No you don't need a starter. You can make one but Brettanomyces will eat everything in there
including the longer chained stuff. Make sure you research what the final gravity of your yeast
is because ...

I'd say it is still good. Plenty if people will tell you it isn't worth keeping yeast that were
stressed or didn't live in optimal conditions. I would wash it and keep some until you taste
the beer. I...

Mine do the same thing and I use an air lock. I almost always make a 2L starter in a gallon

plans for. I personally wouldn't keep sour cultures. I'd pick 1 Brett and 1 other Saccromyces
yeast for al...

Posted in thread: Affect of volume and/or ? on Fly Sparge times on 12-17-2014 at 02:16 PM
Yeah I'd believe it takes water the same amount of time to travel through 10" of mash
regardless of the brewer setup or volume. I didn't consider your second option which now makes
me realize what you...

Yea, and that's not that unheard of. I've only done really fast sparging, but I've read that
