    Quick Starter Question

    So to update you all.. in case you cared... The yeast never did take off.. and a new one was ordered. I brewed beer on Monday... pitched the yeast when I needed to and this morning it was bubbling away like mad... In a few weeks when this goes into secondary I am diving into all-grain!
