Well, we have duly smacked our smack packs and given them time to swell. Now, all we have to do in preparation for the big brew day tomorrow is make our yeast starters!
There are homebrewers who will tell you that you don’t need to make a yeast starter. Well, I say – Good for them! But we here at BeerCat Brewing firmly believe in the power of the yeast starter. And as we’ve never had a lag longer than an hour or two, I’d say that we’re doing something right!
Besides, if Jamil says it’s a good idea to make starters, then it must be a good idea to make starters. He is the walking homebrew equivalent of the Bible!
