Made the yeast starter

Category: Strong Bitter — Josh @ 6:36 pm

I made my starter wort in the same way that I did all my previous starters. I used 2 quarts of water but with 7 ounces of dried malt extract this time and a little hops. I did have some issues with a boil over, and with spilling some when funneling into my sanitized 2 liter soda bottle. Besides all that, I made my starter with about 1 quart of wort because of all the loss. The big thing that I did differently this time with my starter is to aerate the wort with a stainless steel airstone (2 micron), a hepa filter (to make the air sterile), and an aquarium pump.
