Hey guys, so yesterday I just got done bottling my first beer. Today I decided I would try to make a yeast starter for a Hefeweizen kit I have. About 2 hours after I put the yeast in the growler I started getting some bubbles. This is so cool!

How long do you guys let your yeast starters go? 1 day, 2 days?

Congrats ...yeah its pretty amazing what the little buggers can do, they're freakishly tough little bastards

I let it go for 2 days on stir plate (and maybe an extra day just sitting out if I have time)...fridge for 1 day or until I brew...decant top beer off...shake it up and pour into fresh batch!
