Well this week I have stepped up my game a bit. I did my first starter. I made a 1 liter starter out of a vial of white labs german kolsch yeast. After 12hours it was bubbling like mad. Today I made my first starter using harvested yeast, rogue pacman yeast from a batch of mocha porter I made a few months ago. We'll see tomorrow if that one was as successful. I've been brewing for a few years now and have been wanting to try this for some time. Hope it all turns out ok.
