So let's make a yeast starter.....yea, I know.....a starter needs a minimum of 12 hours before you can pitch it. I have a solution......
I'm using 2 liters of the wort we just created. Put it in an Erlenmeyer and boil it to sanitize it.
I put some Ferm-cap drops into the starter to prevent it from boiling over when I put it over the fire. I find these drops slow down the boil over enough to let me catch it in time but dont prevent it. And I put in way more drops than the recommended amount.
Fire it up. I ale=ways feel like a bad arse brewer when I bring out the lab equipment.
I'll let it boil for 10 minutes to thoroughly sterilize the wort.
