Ok, kind of a stupid question and I think I know the answer but......... I am doing a 2000 ml yeast starter and I have a smack pack this time. Should I smack the pack and dump it into my beaker or should Iet it start, then dump it into my beaker to start? I'm guessing I just smack and dump!
Also, when you boil your dme, do you start with 1500 ml or higher to equal 2000. I have only done this process once so I am still learning.
Thanks for any advice.
