Here are a couple of excerpts from instructions for making a yeast starter:
Beer Captured said:Bring to a boil 1/3 cup of extra light DME, 2 cups of water, and 2 hop pellets.
So why the hop pellets in the yeast starter? Does anybody here do that? What purpose do they serve...to make your starter smell like beer? Or is this just a question of trying to sell more hop pellets.Defalco's Website said:Simmer 2 tablespoons of malt extract & a half dozen hop pellets in two cups of water.
