I'm now making staters after doing a few batches with dry yeast or pitching two vials of liquid
yeast at a time. I currently have a 1600 ml starter on a stir plate and I'm wondering about

I don't cold crash and I've had some beers perfectly carbed after a week, while others were
flat (with a small hiss like you had) after one, and took three to be properly carbed up. I
could be wrong, ...

I'm a little wary of fermenters with spigots. One of mine broke two weeks in and leaked, the
