Related question but a little off topic.
I have heard that when pitching onto a cake you want to pitch onto a cake that came from a lower gravty beer is this a good general rule?
I currently have 2 beers going. One is a Bee Cave IPA and another in an American Wheat (Both with S-05). I plan on brewing a Old Rasputin Clone this weekend which calls for an American Ale yeast. Which cake would be better to pitch onto? I know the American Wheat has much more trub and hop bits from the BK cause I didn't use a bag for them and I dumped everything into the fermenter. However the IPA should have less since I used a bag and kept most trub in the BK.
Which cake should I pour my Old Rasputin onto?
