5.2 vials???? Holy exploding carboy batman!!! My one vial lit off pretty hardy within 24 hours. And yes, I know a higher og requires a starter, but like I said I didn't anticipate an og that high. I was shooting for 1.050-1.060. Only had one vial, and I don't own a stirplate. Now as far as off flavors due to low yeast, that's a new one to me. I was under the impression yeast multiplied during fermentation.
ill keep my money, guns, freedom, and religion......you can keep the change.
You like fishsticks, what are you, a gay fish?
