I've just put the dregs of two Sierra Nevada pale ale bottles into a starter of 1.040. 900ml including the dregs. This is on a stir plate mind, but as I mentioned it previously in this thread....

This is what I have SN after 1 week (in a 2L bottle)

I am pretty pleased with this yeild.. I did the first two steps (second one slightly larger) and then went into a 500ml at 1040.. I could be wrong and that could be pretty crap as I haven't done it before but it looks decent to me..

I think from here with a crash, decant I could go stright into a large 2L starter (which means I could possibly brew it this weekend )

Isn't the Sierra Nevada yeast just basically US05?

Are you just being a frugal as possible

I wasn't sure on that one, but Brum says Sierra Nevada in his post.

Btw not all chico strains are created equal. From what I've read US-05 can give a peachy flavour at the top and bottom ends of it's temp range, whereas wlp001/1056 doesn't. I've just bought some WLP001 to use for pseudo lagers/warm weather brewing

Ill be interested to see how he gets on, Brum has went straight in with a 1040 gravity starter with 2 bottle dregs..

Often wondered whether its worth hravesting US05 krausen as it normally hangs around for a bit and is a pretty universal strain so can get used a fair bit.. might seem a bit tight that but at £2.50 a throw it might be worth it and sit it under some wort for a while..
