Making a starter

Postby brewington » Sun Aug 30, 2015 18:35

Hi Guys,
I want to have a go at making a starter for my brew tomorrow for the bank hol brew- never made one before.
Any tips please? :thumb:

By the way I have Youngs basic ale yeast and DME :-)

Some I made earlier... Oatmeal Stout, Speedy Extract IPA, Strawberry infused Rosé, My first AG IPA! ,AG IPA , Alcoholic Ginger Ale, Gluten Free IPA

If you put root beer in a square cup, do you get beer?

Is it dried yeast you have or the liquid ? A dried yeast needs no starter just rehydrating in cooled boiled water to 20 deg c.

ITS TIME 4 ANOTHER BEER

Sounds like dry yeast to me which needs rehydrating rather that a starter. Have a look at Alemans how to (in the how to section).

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.
