If I'm making a double batch (about 15 lb grain) and doing a first runnings barley wine of 2.5 gal, and then a second smaller beer of 5 gal, all from the same mash, can I make a big 2 liter starter and use about 2/3 of it for the barleywine and the rest for the regular beer? This is an idea from Mosher's Radical Brewing and I was trying to keep from doing 2 starters.

Yeah you could certainly do that. I love parti-gyle brew days. What I do is make a starter that's slightly too big for the first runnings, and after about 24 hours I use the "slightly too big" part of the first starter to inoculate a second starter for the second runnings.
