Good questions/comments - was trying to keep it simple for the post, but I'm really trying to step up to a 3L starter at the end. I'm trying to start a bit of a yeast collection/supply. (My related post here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f163/que...supply-297405/
I thought starting with 1L then stepping it up to 3L would result in more yeast propogation than just starting with 3L directly, right?
So I'm actually kinda doing what ipsiad suggested, and that's the reason for just asking about the 1L starter.
