Hey fellow brewers! Long time no talk. Sorry, I don't work from home anymore so can't sit around and chat. I hope you are all well and brewing great beer!
My buddy brought me a bottle of Westvleteren from his last trip to Europe. For those that don't know about this beer, definitely Google it and read the story. I am sitting with it now and have to say can understand why it was voted the best beer in the world....
I wanted to try and propagate the yeast so please critique my process and let me know your thoughts.
I made a 3/4 liter starter at 1.030 and hit it with O2 for about 30 seconds. Not on a stir plate as it's currently being used so put in a half gallon jug with a stopper and plan to open and swirl whenever possible. If I see some activity, I'll decant and make another 1 liter starter at 1.035 and step it up to whatever I need to make a beer after that. Thoughts?
