I've only made starters on my last three brews or so, so I'm not that experienced, but...

The last starter I made was the first one that had serious krausen. It was also the one that I put a lot more DME in than the others...that might be a coincidence though.

All have been fine, and have begun fermenting quickly once pitched.

Well, I pitched my starter into my Belgium Ale last night....It's going completely crazy right now. The contents of my carboy are swirling like mad and the airlock is popping at least 45 times a minute. I hit the target OG that the recipe called for of 1.080....so the yeast has lots to consume!
