Deschutes has been around longer than these cultures have been available to craft brewers. While I may be wrong, I do not recall hearing that Deschutes was a Peter Austin installation, which means that 1187 is either not Ringwood (which many of us have suspected for a long time), or Deschutes does not use a Ringwood-derived culture.From Wikipedia FWIW:
Can you brew it which deemed it cloned shows the yeast as WLP002 from what I can tellHeard the same. Got some going now using Briess and WLP002. Flocced out nicely. little dark (crystal80).
His shaken not stired, pitch and high krausen method is not about pitching the correct number of cells. Its about pitching them in the correct state.This is what S.cerivasai was saying in a similar thread. He also advises against using a stir plate as this stresses the yeast.

What are you making? What's your recipe?Just an APA. All Grain. Following the directions on the bottle. I normally add 1/2tsp. to all my beers.
The better question is why do you believe that you need a 5L starter? Are you making a large batch of beer?Cuz Mr Malty said so. 5.6 Gallons of 1.052 recommends 5l using a stir plate/1 vial. Last Lager i did suffered i think because I under pitched.
