Freezing Starter Wort

Post by Reignman » 1 year ago

I have some spare 2 row and am thinking on making a 2 gallon starter and freezing it. Should I boil it before I freeze it? If so, when I defrost it, do I boil it again?

After defrost definately boil. Cant see any harm in going straight to the freezer after mashing

I am thinking on freezing the wort in those plastic tubs from the grocery store. They are thin. Any issues?

I made 9 L of wort from 2 row. Used around 3 L for my lager starter and just tossed the remaining 6 L in the fridge for 3 - 4 days and will use it to step up my WLP810.
