I've decided this will be my first all-grain brew that I plan to make next week. Too many great reviews to pass it up, and just sounds awesome! I plan on making a double batch as I've ordered a 15 gallon setup, and drink plenty of beer ;-). Guess the only question I had was, should I get 2 vials of yeast, and make 2 starters? I will be ferrminating in two 7.9 gallon buckets. Pretty sure that would be the optimal route, just better safe that sorry. Thanks All!

I just made a 12 gallon batch and bought two vials to make two 2L starters. It's just easier than making a 4L starter and splitting it up into each fermentor...

That's a question of finance and timing, if you don't mind spending an extra $6 then go with two...if you want to save the money and can wait a day or two, then step up one yeast vial...regardless of the route you take, I hope it all turns out well and you make an amazing beer...also once you go all grain, you realize it's easier and cheaper than you thought, it also gives you more control on the recipe! Happy Brewing!

I just got my ingredients in today and will be brewing this in about a week. What temp did you ferment at and did you make a starter or just pitch the vial? Any other suggestions?

I was walking through the grocery store today with my wife when out of the corner of my eye I saw Simply Limeade... as soon as I put it in the shopping cart my wife said I guess that means you're brewing this weekend

Assuming you are using White Labs Hef IV, the manufacture recommends between 66-70 degrees....as for starters, it's not nessecary with these vials, due to the fact that manufactures have dramatically increased the amount of yeast cells in everyone...however if you are an experienced brewer, then it's never a bad idea to do it, it will ensure that your pitching rate is high enough and the yeast are violable....summary, do a starter if you have the equipment/knowledge and feel comfortable doing so, if you don't your beer will still be fine.

Sweetness...my beersmith said 300 billion cells so I figured I had to step up a 2L starter. How much viable cells are in a vial?

Actually I have to correct myself...the vials from white labs only contain 150 billion cells, so you will need either 2 vials or 1 vial and a 2 liter starter.
