I am making a beer with an anticipated OG of roughly 1080. I am looking for help on how to make a starter. I have a SmackPack (Strong Ale) yeast, but I need to make a starter. My basic understanding is 1qtr water with 0.5 cups light DME for wort. Pitch yeast and let take hold for 24 to 48hrs, then add to the starter to the 5-gallons of wort.
Is this right? Are the measurements right?
