Mick,

Welcome to HBT.

Here is a pic of the blowoff tube configuration that Dave is talking about:

Just kegged my batch of Hank's Hefeweizen and its delicious. Got some nice banana notes on the front and a hint of spice on the finish. Very session-able beer, will definitely be making this one again.

Can you go into more detail? I'd like to do this, but have no idea how to....

Starters are pretty easy and let you know the yeast is viable before you pitch.

Ingredients
1/2 Cup DME
2 cups of water
1/4 tsp yeast nutrient

Bring water to a boil, add DME and boil for 10 minutes.
Let it cool until under 80 degrees.
Move wort to flask or bottle
Add nutrients and yeast, shake to mix & Cap with airlock
Let sit for at least 24 hours.

Here's some more info on starters
