    Guys, bit of advice if you will..

    Getting back into brewing after a couple years off due to slackness on my behalf.

    Looking to kick things off with a simple sparkling ale clone, using coopers yrast.

    Obviously need a yeast starter and have a kit brew lying around that I was given and will never use so was wondering if that would work for a yeast starter?

    Any advice appreciated!

    I'd save the kit for when you need to build a BIG starter, like for when you want to do a lager or a big beer like ris. If you want to grow from coopers bottle yeast, you'll first need a 6er, and drink it, then first step would be around 200ml @1020 then 1L @ 1040 then 2L @ 1040 (off the top of my head for a standard batch size)
