1. If I make a starter yeast = 100billon cells and turn them into 300billon cells befor I pitch ... ?

2. Making stater yeast is all about maximizing the cell cout befor a pitch ?

3. THIS IS MY MAIN QUESTION : So if I just pitch the yeast into the wort with out a starter will my yeast not multiply ? Why is it important to have a higher yeast count when i pitch ? The wort will act as a starter and up my yeast count ? RITE ?

Well, sorta.

To simplify: your yeast population will certainly grow as you pitch it into the beer, and it will produce a wide diversity of metabolic byproducts as it does so. If you pitch too much yeast, you won't have enough of these byproducts. If you pitch too little, you'll have to much of them. What exactly counts as the "right amount" is up to you to decide, but the pitching rate calculators offer a rule of thumb to get you in the right ballpark.

I just started to make starters and used this link http://www.mrmalty.com/calc/calc.html . It gives you an estimated cell count and you can tailor how many packs to use ( I use one only). Its pretty extensive, hope this helps
