Let's say I wanted to build up a yeast vial from a bottle of La Chouffe. I have a stirplate. Realistically, how long would it take me to get from the dregs of a bottle to a 2l starter (or more)? I'm a little confused on how much time I would need, and know that you all have experience with this sort of thing.
I would check out the "Yeast slanting" sticky on this. From what I read you are going from a small starter, like 50ml and building up to the 2L. If memory, that is coated in beer, serves I believe it is a week to build one up to a 2L level.
