I am planning on brewing a pumpkin Ale this weekend with an OG of 1.057. I am planning on using Wyeast 1450, Denny’s favorite. I have never used this yeast before and was planning on making a starter. I was just going to make one and give it a swirl every time I walk by, as I do not have a stir plate. I’ve used this method before on a beer with lower OG and it seemed to be fine.
Does anyone have any advice working with this yeast and doing the starter without a stir plate?
