Yeast starter for 10 gallon batch?

Postby claynmold » Fri Oct 29, 2004 5:16 pm

I just started all-grain brewing. This is my first 10 gallon batch. Is 1 white labs yeast with a starter enough yeast?

What's your starter size?

What is the size (volume) of the starter? I tend to use a 3/4 L starter for 5 gal batches, so you would ideally want a 1.5 - 2 L starter for a 10 gal. However, if you are in a pinch I would not worry about having only a 1L starter. Just shoot for more starter volume next time.

I went with a 2 qt. starter, so I am assuming I will be o.k. Thank you for the response.
