I just bought all the ingredients for my first AG brew (woo hoo)
I opted for an oatmeal stout with an OG of 1.052 and with Wyeast 1084. Do I need a starter? While I have your attention, the guy at my LHBS said if I wanted the beer dry then mash at 148. If I wanted it sweeter, mash at 151. Does this sound accurate? Thanks again!
Disregard the first part of that, Mr. Malty answered it for me.
