Yeast and Fermentation / Re: 2 stage yeast starter

Probably the best way to get a huge pitch is to brew a session beer...

Dilution I'm guessing. When I step up yeast I don't decant either, but I'm going from slant to 20ml to 200ml to 2L. 10% isn't much dilution and you can just bump the °p up if it freaks you out too much.

I wonder about staged starters when people are pitching 100ml to 1L, decanting and adding another 1L. At some point it seems the growth will not be what some expect because the yeast amount will be getting close to max for the volume anyway. I know I get great growth with 1:10 and probably could go 1:20 if the nutrients are there.

Edit: Denny was typing while I was. Lol

Another way is to pitch yeast that are active into well oxygenated wort. If they are in exponential phase the difference between 200 and 400 billion cells is about 90 minutes.

My unpopular opinion of the day is that something cannot be deemed popular just by one person, or even a group of people, even if they represent the majority, because if I say it's unpopular then it's unpopular. Plus sometimes it's very popular to be unpopular. Popular popular... doesn't even sound like a real word if you say it enough

I am not a fan of dropping yeast temps until they are done with fermentation. I'd avoid that. I only worry about chilling my lager starter wort before pitching the starter yeast. That way I'm not shocking the starter by dumping it into cold wort.

I'm getting confused here. I force carb in the keg. Is that popular? Unpopular?

Confirmed! Works great! Thanks!
You fixed my basic brewing radio problem too, lol.

Looks like that might work Denny, thanks. I just need to learn the app now, lol.

No idea, whatever the phone has. It will play streaming but not download.

Probably my phone. I don't have a computer. My old phone would do it. Oh well

To be clear, I really only care about my beer. I'm not trying to start a movement. I'm just curious and if I prove I need my 1L starters then cool. If I prove I don't, then that's cool too.

I mean prove to me. There's no way to prove anything here...

German Helles Exportbier and I've been getting lucky for about 10 batches over two years

I would not count on good results doing this in aerated wort. I oxygenate heavily.

By the way, I'm on your side. But I think there are areas where we just continue regurgitating what some "expert" said... concensus doesn't make things true

Here's another mind blow... on these latest lagers, at day 4 (50% ADF) I usually start ramping up 6° per day. They were at 50f and in my poorly lit garage I hit the wrong arrow 6 times. I went out the next day, with better lighting, and found that I had actually dropped the temp to 44F. So I said WTF and bumped it up 12°. I would not recommend dropping your lagers 6° on day 4, but it seemingly did not effect the beers at all.
