I am brewing this this weekend too. I got some 007 in the mail and just made the starter. It was like clumpy and odd texture. Is that bad news?

I have a 2L erlymer flask I make starters with on a stir plate. My question is whether I should use both vials in the starter or just use one?

Thanks
Unless you plan on using the other vial for something else, then toss 'em both in there. Check out the yeast calculator at mrmalty.com to get an idea about how large your starter should be.

As for your 'clumpy' yeast, my guess is that it will be fine. Trying to make a starter out of it is going to tell you for certain. What is the date on the vials?

Well got too drunk last night so the brew is now postponed unitl tomorrow. How long do I need to let the starter go on the stirplate before I can put it in the fridge and decant? Ohiobrewtus, the date was dec 2010... Anyone have any suggestions on water profiles for this brew or porters in general?

Thanks

Isn't it the expiration date that is posted on the yeast vial? Maybe I saw it wrong and it wasn't a date in the future... Are the dates the expiration or date they were made?

Had a great brew, hit target of 1.060 exactly and got 81% efficiency for my first AG batch @ home. Yeaaahhhh!

Currently bubbling away @ 66 degrees, will definitely post pics and review of finished product. Thanks OhioBrewtus!

Brewed this Sunday! All went well other than I only hit 1.056. Smelled amazing going into fermenter. Bubbling about 10 hours after pitching starter. I'll give updates to the results in about 2 months. Thanks ohiobrewtus.
