I wanted to try using a real wort starter so I used my chiller to get the wort to about 135*. I then filled 2 jars and my fermenter with the wort. Once my starter jars were at pitching temperature I split the smack pack between them and put them on my stir plates. I am using one of the jars to ferment the wort and the other jar to farm some yeast for my frozen yeast bank. What is left from the yeast that I don’t bank I am going to add to a 8oz capable Coke bottle and throw in the fridge. It will leave me enough yeast to ferment another batch if I make another starter like the one pictured.
With the wort I put in my fermenter I let it cool to pitching temperature overnight in my 67* basement. I aerated and pitched the yeast this morning and will move it into my loft bedroom in a day or two which is 10* hotter to help the yeast finish out.
