I've got my first brew day in a while coming up. I want to split the batch into two 5 gallon batches, and pitch a different yeast into each. i've never done a starter before.
I only have one stirplate, and will use growlers to make the starters.
I haven't tried the growlers on the stirplate yet, but the bottoms seem pretty flat and it should work.
If I want to do this, should I make 1 starter and then put in the fridge while the second is on the plate?
I assume that this way I still can chill down the second starter to let the yeast settle out before I pitch on saturday.
I was thinking I would give the first starter a try on thursday eve (cold crash friday eve), and do the second starter on friday (cold crash saturday am). brew saturday.
how long should I let them out of the fridge before pitching?
