Second runnings, Sean, or made from scratch with DME? Probably doesn't matter?
First runnings taken as soon as the vorlauf clears, diluted to 8-10°P, boiled for a couple minutes, then chilled in the sink. DME would be almost the same thing, I just don't keep any on hand. I do like the idea that it's the same wort as the batch, just lower in gravity, since I pour the whole starter in.
