Default Starter for 10 gallons of cream ale

So I'm going to brew a 10g batch of cream ale, and I only have 1 pack of US05, to make things worse, I took 3grams out for a tiny batch !!

I put the remaining 8 grams into a 1qt 1.030 canned starter on the stirplate this morning, tonight it looked good and creamy so I added another qt of starter tonight. Any chance this will be built up enough to pitch on Monday ??

Entirely possible. Try to keep the temperature around 72 degrees.

Two quarts on a stirplate will most definitely be enough man. Have a good brewday!
