I'm curious as to how most of you get the yeast pitched when splitting a ten gallon batch between two vessels.
Do you make two different starters?
Make one big starter and just shoot for half into each vessel?
Any other method?
(this is assuming the same yeast for each vessel)
When I make a starter for a 10 gallon batch I pitch my yeast into a 1/2 gallon growler. When its done, it step it up into a full gallon growler. Usually I ferment in a carboy large enough for a 10 gallon batch; however, when I do split them I just try and pour equal amounts in each carboy.
