Making Yeast Starters

Saturday, 9/2/2017 (11:00am-12:30pm) Sign up for 9/2

A yeast starter is essentially a tiny batch of beer through which yeast cells are propagated, or reproduced, to increase the amount of cells pitched into 5 gallons of fresh wort. The secret to a yeast starter is in aerobic metabolism, or keeping oxygen in the starter so that the yeast ferments very little, mostly just increases in cell count.
