starters are easy though. get a .5 gallon mason jar and put 100 grams of Dried Malt extract in the jar. add water to the 1 liter line, close up with the dome and band that came with the jar, Shake the beejeesus out of it until it's all combined, and put it in a pot of water so the water comes up to near the level of the liquid inside the jar and boil until you see good boiling action inside the jar.
One hint, if you shake for a while and then put it in the water for a while and then take it out and shake some more it's much easier to get everything to combine.
anyway, when that is done you have a very nearly sterile jar or starter wort at just about esaclty 1.037 perfect.
let it cool to blood temp (under 100*f) and pitch two vials of yeast into it. shake again. and then leave it somewhere where you can swirl it whenever you notice it.
