Oh yeah I knew that and that's the reason I wanted a big starter so that I can store a few jars for the future. I'm a cheapo.My starter could have used a blow off tube! Took off in 3 hours.
I'm pretty sure it's their version of WLP001 and I'm going to use it in a IIPA this Sunday. I made a 2L starter and split it up into 2 jars and will keep one jar for a future brew but will step up the other jar for the brew this weekend. I figure if I'm paying this much, I want to keep some around for a few more batches.
At this early stage, I'm happy with it so far. The true test will be when I drink the beer.
you did realize you were paying more because it was 200bn cells versus 100bn in wyeast or white labs, right?
