It took me around 16 hours to brew 18 gallons of 1.040 starter wort and can it. Dont think i will ever do this much at one time again. But here's the end product, doesnt look like much though. 60 quarts and 24 pints.

Did ja put any hops into it or are you just relying on the canning process to keep it wholesome?

Relying on the canning process. Didnt want to add anything to it. They should keep for a long time.

Yep. I just got the all american 930 pressure canner, works awesome if anybody is thinkin about getting one. It allows 14 quarts to be done at once. The part that takes the longest is the vessel having to cool down to 0 psi on the gauge before opening.

Did you boil the wort first? When I put up starter wort I'll bring it to a boil for 10 mins or so, but I still get hot break in the mason jars. I've taken to straining as I dump it into my flask, but no break would be even better. BTW I have the same pressure cookčr-awesome unit

what does one do with starter wort? do you just mix it with a pack/vial of yeast and *boom* starter?

Exactly, making starters is a pain and time consuming. So i figured i would make abunch of wort for future yeast starters. I actually boiled it for the usual 60 minutes so that i could get the correct OG. I didnt filter it so there is some hot break in the wort but that wont affect the yeast.
