put into my ne...

You either need around a 5L starter (assuming you only use one vial; also assuming you're using
a stir plate for continuous aeration), or pitch 2 vials into a 2 liter starter -- either should
net you ...

Yep -- this is exaclty what I have done. Build at least an 8" collar (10" if you want to ensure
a little extra room), and you'll be fine. I have 2 ball lock 5 gal cornie's in the lower, and 1
