Stepping up starter with same volume?
I was planning on brewing on Sunday but life got in the way and I've had to hold off for a week until next Saturday. Happens to everyone right?
However, I already made my 2L starter with the planned brew-day on Sunday. So, with the extra week, I thought I'd try stepping up my starter. I only have a 2 liter flask or 64oz growlers without going all the way to a 5g carboy.
So, with that in mind, does it buy me anything to pitch the yeast from the first starter into another 2L starter? Or does making another starter only increase cell count by going to a larger volume?
I guess I'm asking if it buys me anything to make another 2L starter from my first 2L starter or do I need to make a bigger volume starter (like a gallon) to see any benefit?
Bah!! Who said that??
