This is a new one for me. I kind of screwed up before I even started brewing
I'm planning on brewing a five gallon batch of ESB tomorrow. The planned OG is 1.059. Mrmalty tell me I need about a liter and a half starter (205 billion). I usually like to get my starters going at least 48 hours prior so they finish out before crashing, decanting and pitching. Unfortunately, I got busy and forgot to get yeast earlier this week. I'm thinking 24 hours isn't long enough for a starter. Should I pony up and get two vials and forgo the starter or would I get enough out of a 24 hour starter?
Oh, forgot to mention the yeast. I was planning on using White Labs 002: English Ale. I have a satchet of Dantstar Windsor in the fridge that was to go for a later brew. Thinking I might just go with that.
