I had 1/2 kg of lme that I wanted to use so I made a brew on the weekend. I used 150g in a litre of water to make the starter, and added the rest of the lme to the wort.

I bottled about 50ml's of the starter for next time, and pitched the remainder.

I was just wondering, do you say the brew contains a 1/2kg of lme, or just 350 g's.

I suppose it would depend on whether you were adding the entire starter to the wort or just the sediment.

If you add the lot, then use the full 500g in your calcs as long as you include the volume of the starter as well. After all this really is just 850ml of partially attenuated wort.

If you just add the sediment, don't bother using it in your calcs.
