No, I haven't made a starter for any of my beers and haven't had any problems using WL yeast. It is a matter of storage and time that I don't make starters.

Gotta love how people are "willing" to sell stolen items. Not that using commercial kegs in home brewing is new or uncommon. Just ironically funny. Good luck with the build, I am jealous. I don't...
