It looks like he was lucky with his tap water too, although impressive he won with a fairly low alcohol beer.

He built up his starter from dry yeast.

Most folks would advise that a starter is not required when using dried yeast...just pitch two packets.

Just goes to show....there is no "wrong" way.....or perhaps more accurately....there are many ways that will work.
