Iíll most probably make a starter with the spiral just to make sure I donít ruin 5 gallons of wort.


Not a bad idea!

Did you go directly from the old beer into the new wort? Grav and type of starter? Any cleaning of the spiral?

Na. Had the spiral in a ziplock in the fridge for a day or so.

About a 32 oz. starter made with 0.5 lbs of Extra Light DME.

Just washed it off and allowed it to air dry before bagging and refrigerating it.
