I just picked up some wlp090 today and started a 1500 ml starter. I pitched it at 69 degrees . I'm going to use this for my latest IPA ... I will post results .

My Bourbon County Stout clone (SG ~1.129) is still bubbling away 10 days later.

Gravity reading? No way! I'm letting this thing finish its work first. Another few days and it should be done. A bubble every 21 seconds at the start of day 10.

I've had issues with the last two vials I've used. Fermentation is taking much longer than previous batches and it's not floc'ing out well at all. Note: a starter was made for the two separate batches.

Fwiw, the starter that I cold crashed seems to have performed far worse than the one that I pitched at high Krausen. I will have a bit of data to confirm that in a few days.

Well my starter is bubbling away pretty good by now it's been 16 or so hours and its doing great . Can't wait to see how it does with my Stone ipa clone recipe.

You shouldn't have an airlock on the starter as you want to have gas exchange. Grab a piece of foil, spray some sanitizer on it, and loosely place it over the opening. That will keep anything from falling in while allowing CO2 and O2 exchange.

It's been going for about 24 hours you think I should replace airlock with foil ? I just don't want any contamination ... One of my first starters and I wanna keep it pure ... Is foil the norm ? What benefits will I get from using foil instead of airlock?
