I like 1469 West Yorkshire Ale for my porter. I'm guessing it would be just as good in a stout. It flocculates really well, and gives a slight bit of fruityness.

But if you are doing 10 gallons, you're either going to have to buy multiple smack packs or find a flux capacitor and a stretch of highway where you can hit 88 mph without getting pulled over, because a starter isn't going to be very productive by tomorrow. Otherwise, you'll be under-pitching.

Agree with signpost. Planning liquid yeast a day before on 10 gallons isn't the smartest idea unless you're willing to shell out the cash for multiple packs.

Well brew day got pushed back to next week! So I am thinking if making a starter,but I've never made one. I got a pretty good idea of what to do how big if a starter should I do for 10 gal? Going to split into 2 carboys

Or yeastcalc.com

I might get crucified for this, but just about any size starter we'll get the job done. Either of those calculators might tell you to do a huge 3L or 4L starter for a 10 gallon batch. Although a huge starter might be ideal for that size batch, you can probably get away with doing a smaller one.

I love Denny's Favorite 50 (Wyeast 1450) for my oatmeal stout. It's perfect, as it gives a rich (even luscious) mouthfeel, but the beer isn't underattenuated. It really enhances the silkiness of the oats in my opinion.

Four packages for 10 gallons is probably enough, but I'd check mrmalty.com. Or 2 2 liter starters.
