has anyone thought about having a dedicated starter wort keg?
at $4/lb for DME, brewing a keg worth of 2row and racking it hot into a keg seems pretty appealing. without any concern for tannins, etc., you can really wring the grain out and get excellent efficiency, too.
it will be sanitized, won't need refrigeration and can be dispensed with co2 and a party keg setup. cheap starter wort on draft!
