Blog about trying to make beer, good beer.

I brewed up a yeast starter for my next beer. The Carolina Brewmasters' website has a nice "how to" or education section.

The fact that the "wee heavy" has a lot of fermentable sugars means that I have to give the yeast (in this case Wyeast 1728/Scottish) a headstart to build up its cell count so that when I pitch it into the wort they'll be ready to start converting the fermentable sugars, very cool.
