well i could still be a munson. it's been 24 hours now, and there's still a thick head of krausen, but it looks like maybe it's starting to settle??? i thought it was at its peak when i left for work this morning (again, my first starter), but when i came home ~21 hour mark, it was all spewed over and really foamy. a nice yeasty aroma coming off it, but lot's of drippage down the sides.
i'm thinking my starter vessel is too small for my volume, and hoping i'm not losing all my yeast buds.
after this guy's done, should i cold crash, and then pitch to a larger starter, in hopes of gaining some troops back? if so, does the gravity of the wort need to be the same as the first starter's or should that be fine as long as it's similar?
