Hmm.. I am brewing a ten gallon batch this weekend. so far I have made a 1 liter starter at 1.040og
I was going to step it up with another 1.5L starter with same og but I see you are recommending to do about half that.
underpitching 50% per mr. malty for a 10 gallon batch makes me nervous. I know underpitching causes more strain=esters but that seems a bit too much of an underpitch. am I misunderstanding something? Im not doubting you, just clarifying.
I must have read this wrong. your saying pint for 5 gal, then step up to a L for 10g, or just a straight 1l starter?
