I've just pitched my 1st liquid yeast and watching the starter grow and now starting to smell all the esters and stuff is great, I'm a convert ;) Now to start researching washing, cakes, splitting, stir plates etc etc :D
Head on over to http://www.mrmalty.com/calc/calc.html :) you will need your OG and remember to switch fermentation type to lager, if you are doing a true lager (colder ferment temp = more yeasties)
Thanks for the tips :) I'll be going the test batch method, Ive work out the probable losses just using water but until it gets grain in there its just going to be a guesstimate.
Looks like I'm ready to go :icon_cheers:
