I'm planning out two identical grain bills of Stout to ferment at the same time in separate F.Vs. both with Wyeast Irish Ale 1084. One Pride of Ringwood, the other Fuggles.
I've only used a smack pack once before (whole thing all in), and wanted to split this one for the two starters using 1L of post boil/pre no chill cube wort from each of the batches I'll be fermenting. O.G is 1.047, so I'll dilute a little down to 1.040.
I like the idea of using the same wort it's going into and wanted to try this as it seems perfect for this situation with the two batches.

If this fails I've got another pack of the same in the fridge to try again.
If it works I'll back it up with another double batch of the same and settle in for the rest of the year with what will be my standard go to from the fridge.
Seriously looking a a stir plate and a couple of flasks lately, and reading up on harvesting. Next step will be trying my hand at harvesting from some Coopers Stout big browns.

$15 a smack pack is a little too much. I'm stingy with some things, and the nearest supplier is 4+1/2 hours away.
Seeing a real need to be semi self sufficient for yeast.
Next - Bohemian Pilsner.
Cubed - Sierra Pale.
F.V's - Smokey Dark Ale, Basic Stout.
Briefly Bottled - Basic Stout II, Basic Stout III, Stock Stout, Victory Stout, Southern Cross Pale, Smoked Porter.
