I don't usually mess with my starters too much, usually it's just a half liter starter and it goes in the fermentor.
I have two beers lined up for tomorrow and friday, they use the same yeast but my LHBS only had one vial. I made a 500ml starter with 2 oz of DME yesterday, it's looking pretty robust so far.
I'm wondering if I can expect decent starts if I split this starter between the two batches, both will have an OG around 1.054-56.
If not I guess it's dry yeast, though all I have is coopers and stupid muntons
