6oz of DME really is an O.G. of 1030... I've always done that but, never actually measured.. ;D

I do all of my starter wort in quart canning jars. 2.5 oz per jar. 15 min at 15 psi. I do about 14 quarts at a time. Always room temp when I need it.

I always wanted to try that.  It's on my brewing "bucket list"......

I tried it once and will never change. Its brewing lite, if you need a fix but don't have room. Great way to brew while watching a game or... The best part is having room temp starter wort on hand all the time

Yeah, It would definitely make a last minute decision to brew easier.  I like it.

even better, next time you are making beer calculate for an extra 2 gallons of wort. run off into a separate container and dilute to 1.030ish and pressure can. I find I can often just run the extra water through my grain after I get my boil volume and get what I need. free, sterile, room temp starter wort!

That's a really good idea, I just may have to try that!
