Another thing if the yeast were just washed the day before they didn't settle, there is such a thing as a tight and loose slurry. In other words if this container would have set for a week there would have been even less then 75ml do to compactment

Good suggestion on yeast concentration. So 8 hours since the second pitch and there is a bit of rise in the airlock. It'll probably be rocking and rolling by tomorrow morning. Thanks for the info, I'll use those yeast calcs again in the future. Good stuff.

Default First time pitching washed yeast

Oh, and to answer the yeast starter question....no, I've not done a starter yet. This is actually my 4th batch ever....did 2 extract + specialty grains, and this current batch is my second all grain batch. Didn't get my mash efficiency on the first one, so I'm doing the same recipe again, and adding some complexity! I've been procrastinating on buying a stir plate and flask. What would you recommend?

Build a stir plate. Search in the DIY forum. It's too cheap not to.

I brew 3.5 gallons batches exclusively. I always have positive fermentation within six hours when I pitch between 150 and 200 milliliters of cropped, non-rinsed slurry.
