    I mix up 3 gallons about every 6 months and leave it in a covered pail...use it over and over.
    I test the pH monthly and it is always in the 2.4-2.6 range.

    I use anti-foam for starters, in the boil and during fermentation and have never had an issue.
    The quantities you gave are very reasonable.

    You can build a small Burton union that recovers your blow off, returns it to the fermenter,

    Once LME is open, well, you pretty much need to use it all.

    How much DME would I use for 1.5L? Also in regard to refridgeration, do you mean after
    fermenting at room temp or fermenting the whole time in the fridge? I was gonna cold crash the
    starter after 48 h...

    So, I've gotten good advice from others on here on trying to use the lightest LME. I've been
