Oh, a word of warning which Foxbat also mentioned. A 1.5L starter in a 2L flask will quite likely over flow, some of my yeasts have been fine and didnt foam that much but the belgian did, a lot... If the description of the yeast includes "true top cropper" then beware. Stirplate doesn't seem to knock out the foam, maybe it would at 1L but not above it. I've got Wyeast 3522 Belgian Ardennes which was the issue (twice) so I'm more wary for the west yorkshire strain when I come to use it.
