I don't agreee with this statement. If you pitch a wyeast packet
into a 12 oz starter, wait one day, and then pitch to the fermenter,
it seems to take off faster than just pitching into the fermenter
directly, plus the extra day.

i.e., If you dilute yeast too much, they seem to slow down more
than proportionately.
