Yeast Starter for 1 Gallon Batch?

(1/4) > >>

mwhammer99:
Hi guys, I'm going to be brewing a 1 gal. batch of Dead Ringer IPA (1.064) this weekend.  Anyone think I need a yeast starter, or can I pitch it dry?

tygo:
What yeast are you using?  If you're using a dry yeast then no need to make a starter.  Just rehydrate the appropriate amount of yeast and pitch it.

If you're using a liquid yeast then yes, you should make a starter.  Check out http://www.mrmalty.com/calc/calc.html for the right sized starter.

erockrph:
If it's only a 1 gallon batch you don't need a starter for liquid yeast at that gravity.

tygo:
Ah, I missed the 1 gallon part.

gmac:
At 1 gallon it IS a starter. Well almost.
