If you will be brewing lagers get the 5l flask and a 2l flask. Most average gravity lagers are going to need 400 billion cells or more for a 5 gal batch. One large starter, 3+ liters, gets you close. With a 2l flask you'll need to do multiple steps. I have a 1, 2 and 5 liter flask and those work out well for me, I brew 80% lagers.
