Dummy me thought it was like brewing an ale.
Doing a Czech Pilsner (estimated OG 1.051) and have a couple of questions.
It looks like the single pack of Wyeast 2278 Czech Pils is not enough on its own to pitch my planed 5.25 gal batch…it looks like I need about 500 billion yeast cells, so I guess I need to do a starter?
Would the below be a good method?:
• I gal water
• 1lb DME
• Pitch starter at 70* for 3-4 days or until vigorous fermentation has slowed cool to 45-47* and pour off nutrient and add yeast to 45-47* wart?
