    1.01 @ 6 weeks in. Very slight sour starting to develop. Temps have been high 60's where it's
    fermenting. Once I turn the heater on for the winter it will ramp up a bit. It will probably be
    Christmas ...

    YOu normally do not have to as these are enough for a 5-6 gallon pitch. Making a starter will
    just change the proportion of bugs/yeast in the mix so starters are not recommended. If you
    must make a st...

    yeah but can the 02 affect the blend?The only effect O2 will have is to produce healthier cells

    71% apparent attenuation is pretty good for only being 36 hours into fermentation! Give it

    I have fermented with 1728 Scottish Ale in the mid-50's with great results. I agree with the
    post above though, large temperature swings (50 at night, 65 in the morning) will stress any
    yeast out. Jus...
