        only a keg worth, the thing i read said to go for about 100 billion cells but maybe that was overkill. next time i'll probably just make a starter

        I read 20 billion for a standard 20L batch but can't recall the source. In any case, it's cheap anyway

        No idea what I was thinking, but it was spectacular
        .. and messy. Smells amazing, hopefully not ruined.
