Yeast Starter Kits and Accessories Too!
One of the secrets to improving the flavour of your beer is to make a yeast starter. Although not really necessary, most homebrewers find it easy to make good yeast starters and do so all the time. A yeast starter is basically a small batch of homebrew made to grow more yeast. The purpose of a yeast starter is to grow healthy yeast cells that will aid in the fermentation of the wort to create the final product.
Without the yeast starter, you may not be able to get enough viable yeast to fully ferment your beer. It will also help activate the yeast strain that has been sitting inside your fridge or cupboard for a long time. Lastly, it is a great way to proof your yeast making, to ensure that most of them are alive before using them. (more info below)
