I was part of a big brew on Saturday and took home 5 gallons of Helles bock at 1.070 and 5 of Schwarzbier at 1.052. I chilled them down to 47F and got my big slurry of second gen WLP 833 (Bock Lager) ready to pitch.
Thinking the Helles would need more, I eyeballed it and accidentally poured about 80% of the slurry into the Helles, which left me with only about half a cup of slurry for the Helles.
By Sunday morning the Helles was going nicely at 50F, but no sign from the Schwarz, which I expected. Airlock had no pressure on it, and top of wort was clear. This morning still nothing, so I decide to stop and grab some yeast packs to repitch with. I had to go with Wyeast 2066 (Bavarian Lager). I bought 3 packs.
I smack the packs, look into the fermentation fridge and the airlock now has little pressure on it, where before there was none, and there are some bubbles o the surface of the Schwarz.
My question is, should I pitch the smack packs so I don't get the effects of an under pitched lager? Or, will the original pitch of WLP 833 still build up enough to ferment well? Will blending these yeasts be worse? I am now 48 hours in.
All thoughts are appreciated. Thanks in advance.
