I have a smack pack of Wyeast 9097 Old Ale Blend which I plan to use next weekend.
Since this is a blend of different critters, do I go about making a starter in the same way? My gut tells me yes, since the Brett character develops over time - I'm trying to build up a large, healthy colony of 'regular' yeast to get the fermentation going and as long as the Brett is there in the background, it will do its thing when the time comes. Does that sound about right?
OG ~1.080, 6 gallons into the fermentor, assuming all goes well.
