Here is a shot of my very first yeast starter about 5 minutes after pouring the yeast into the flask. The other shot is fermentation after 24 hours.
I'm brewing a Chinook IPA from Northern Brewer. The yeast is Wyeast 1056 American Ale smack pack. I allowed the pack to warm up and inflate for about 4 hours before boiling the DME and pitching into the flask.
