    Planning to make a saison next weekend. I chose Yeast Bay Saison Blend yeast for this. Looking at the single vial I received, with a best by date of 4/21, I'd be severely under pitching my planned 1049 OG Saison. Given that it's a blend, it's said that one should not make a starter as the "blend" could be altered. I'd have to buy four more vials, at $8.50 each + shipping, to pitch at 0.75. Any suggestions? Right now I'm thinking I'm just going to dump in the one vial and let it run.

    on a 1049 beer 1 is enough, its just going to start slower but should be fine, make sure you give it extra oxygen

    Thanks, that's what I was thinking, it's not a high OG anyway.

    Agreed. A starter will change the blend. The single vial should be sufficient, again provided you give the wort a good bit of oxygen. That'll increase the lag time, the yeast will have more of an opportunity to reproduce themselves before switching over to anaerobic fermentation.
