We bought a 2 liter Erlenmeyer flask and a bag of DME along with our usual blonde ale ingredients.

We are going to do a split batch of 5 gallons each American Safale US-05 and White Labs WLP500 Trappist. There was only one vial of Trappist available so we needed to do a yeast starter.

While an overnight starter will not yield massive amounts of yeast cells, but we should get a good start.

The Yeast book by Chris White and Jamil Zainasheff suggests putting the flask on the burner with 2 liters of water and 200 grams of DME. This is exactly what was done.
