Not inherently. The larger the starter volume in proportion to the main batch, the more it's going to impact the beer. I normally don't have a problem pitching the whole thing of a 1L starter into a 5 gal batch (although I normally prefer to cold crash and decant as I normally make bigger starters anyway). However, in a 2.5 gallon batch, that's a bigger starter than I'd want to be adding.Uh, ive been pitching the entire starter at high krauzen. Bad?
Bad is a relative term but yeah I wouldn't call it good. You're basically tossing an unhopped liter of bad session beer into whatever you are brewing.Uh, ive been pitching the entire starter at high krauzen. Bad?
Like I said, there's nothing WRONG with it, but like everything else there are some drawbacks.
