I just saw this on the shelves a couple weeks ago. I can't tell you how many times I Googled canned wort starter to see if I could get this miracle juice somewhere other than A-B Owned homebrew shops. Propper Starter is made by Omega Yeast Labs. You pour one 16 oz of starter wort (with yeast nutrient already in it) in your flask, top off the empty can with 16 oz. of Distilled water (so you can skip the whole time-consuming and boring step of boiling and then chilling your tap water), and pitch the yeast. This ratio of one can of starter + one can of water gets you 1 Liter of 1.040 SG wort.

I tried it with 2 different cans making 2 different 1 L starters, both clocked in at exactly 1.040 SG. And after cold crash and decanting, I still had gravity dropping 5 hours after pitch in 50F wort. I am so pleased. I recently did some experiments with and without a starter, only to be disappointed to prove to myself the common collective knowledge that starters do make a difference on more challenging fermentations (cold fermentation temps, older yeast packs, higher gravity). So I've been trying to find a way to minimize the expansion of my brew day to now start a couple days earlier. I timed my starter preparation, starting with spraying stuff down with Star San, to having a mixed starter with yeast on a stir plate- 5 Minutes, 26 seconds!

And now I can do it with a clear conscience without having to send my bucks to A-B!
