    Well it's 6 gallons of wort that is pressure canned to be used for starters at later dates. Basically the main benefit is the starters for my brews take basically no time when i need to make them (time spent up front making and canning the wort.) The second benefit is I feel the yeast is healthier for it due to the break material in the starters from the all grain vs extract starters.

    This makes sense. When I read it and thought you made a single 6 gal starter I was wondering a bit

    We all thought this and thought @mors was going pro-scale. Turns out, he's just better at planning.

    The esb and helles were planned but I picked up a 15 gallon rye whisky barrel this pay weekend so I had to brew up some old ale to fill it with.

    There's no starting point. It's just a massive sea of shit to wade through until you find the occasional corn kernel. -DrCurly

    We're doing it ironically now because we're all hipsters and brewing used to be cool.
