Thanks for your help in advance!
air mike check out the pitch rate calculator at www.mrmalty.com
, plug in your numbers and it'll tell you exactly what you're looking for! Also reference Fred Dujour's webpage www.beerdujour.com
and read the 'Brewing High Gravity Beer' article. Both of these should provide all the basic info you need and a inform you beyond the basics. Good luck.
