Default Starter clarfication

When it is said a '1 Liter Starter' this means the amount of volume of wort in the starter, right? Or does it mean the final result should be 1 Liter of pitchable slurry?


I ask this because of adding sugar to 'step up' the size of the starter.


I'm assuming it means 1 Liter of wort but thought I'd clarify...

Thanks
Hopleaf

Yeah, 1L of wort.

It would take weeks of stepping up to come up with 1 liter of pure yeast cells.

I think 1L of pure yeast cells would be the definition of over pitching....

Don't use sugar to make a starter with. The yeast get used to the sugar and will be unable to ferment the more complex sugars contained in the wort. Use LME or DME to make a 1040 OG starter.
