Higher efficiency than expected. Did I pitch enough Yeast
 
Hey all,

I brewed my third all grain yesterday Ed Worts Hause Pale. This was my second batch. The first time I batch sparged and got 70%. However this time I fly sparged and collected 5 gallons of wort with a SG of 1.070 which based on my calculations is 92%. This is a good thing however I only had one vial of yeast should I pitch another vial or RDWHAHB. Thanks

use this to determine how much yeast you should use: http://www.mrmalty.com/calc/calc.html

If you didn't make a fairly large starter, one vial will likely be underpitched. this does not mean that it wont get the job done, but it may take a while

I've always used Nottingham dry yeast for Ed's Haus Ale and its always been great plus its easy and cheap.
