Hello! I made my first starter ever; from a slant. I added 3 loops of yeast in 10 ml of wort.
After 24 hours i poured the content of the vial in 500 ml of wort on my stir plate, altough i
didn't see a...

Not sure. What i would guess, since one colony is approx one million cells, they are together.
A microscope would be needed at that point. I checked Chris and Jamils yeast book for starters
and there ...

I plan 10 days in advance, from plate to fermentor. Two days each step. This method of yeast
handling is not for everyone. Its time consuming and tedious. You have to love the microbiology
to sustain ...

You could have a perfect looking slant and still streak a plate that shows bacteria or wild

but then again I don't use an airlockCould you elaborate on this. Ive started doing open
ferments for the first 3 days myself, and have noticed great results.

and a few comments... "definitely had a faster and cooler ferment with last open fermentation
vs closed, by about two days. Hardly any loss in hop aroma and flavor, without dry hopping,
