I went to Mr. Malty to get my starter size for a Maibock I was going to brew on Monday. I don't have a stir plate and I use intermittent shaking. The estimated OG is 1.067 and Wyeast 2308 (Munich Lager) yeast that I picked up is date Nov. 29. Anyway, I went to see how much I need and slid the bar all the way to the right for larger starter less packs and says I need 2 packs in a 6 quart starter for 532 billion cells. I have no way to get another pack (HBS quite a ways away and I work all week) and I smacked it before I came to work to make sure it is viable. Should I step it up? Should I make a larger starter?
If you think I should step it up, what size steps should I use and how long will it take me?
If you think I should make a larger starter, how big do you think it should be?
Thanks in advance for your help.
