I have a Ranco 2-stage, 40 watt bulb covered by a small metal coffee can. Works great! Does the temp get down to 0 inside your garage?

No, no, you misunderstand. 2 or 4 liter starters in a 6 liter flask on a stirplate, with .5 micron sintered stone!So, hit the starter with O2 every 8 hours for a couple of days?Sure, although that might not be as good as a stirplate. It foams up pretty quickly so there's only so much O2 you can bubble through it. Some foam control and/or a larger vessel would help. But the stirplate is set and forget, so I like that solution better.
But back on topic, the poking fun happens more east/west here and we have a severe inferiority complex when it comes to the neighboring southern border even though Canada is larger (see there it is again).Yes, but my wife keeps telling me size doesn't matter!
It won't happen instantaneously, but they will start to grow as quickly as they can when the conditions are right for growth.So, hit the starter with O2 every 8 hours for a couple of days?
I've always thought that pitching a start that is still "active" is the best way to go and that brewers let the starter finish so they don't have the bland starter wort/beer diluting the batch...Tom, is this the best method for yeast health and harvesting the yeast from the target batch? Is the lag time important as the yeast go into growth phase, or will they just jump back to growth phase when they are introduced back into the target wort?
Yeah, if you can get past the ick factorIn my experience PBW + bleach trumps ick. Just don't tell anyone outside this forum!
