Culbetron, I obviously still have a lot to learn about yeast. I was not aware of improved
viability of 05 by pitching in primary. Where can I learn and read about this? I can certainly
pitch with cake...

Can I just assume that 4-5 points will need to be converted? That equates to about 50-100
billion cells or one or two packets. ???

I'm trying to determine how much Safale 05 to add in secondary to finish a 12% ABV Barleywine.
By finish, I mean I'll use 05 after an S04 & Notty yeast cake from a wheat IPA, does it's work.
I know S0...

My bet is water. I use distilled water. Extract adds sufficient minerals for yeast. Add a bit
of nutrients for good measure. Good luck.

Jukas, I used the "Repitching from Slurry" tab on Mr. Malty. My dates were both 10/27/2012.
Otherwise, I used default values.

I donít think lautering does much in changing the fermentability. If it does anything it would
be in the noise of other factors. Agreed, and it does, as you state, effect the quantity of

site says 10% viable;yeastcalc says 45% viable.That is a big difference. Is this just a wild
a** guess, or what?
Posted in thread: Yeast Washing Illustrated on 01-09-2013 at 09:30 PM
Either of the calc sites should give you a good estimation of viability based upon age. At more
than 9 months I'd expect < 10% viabilitySorry, which calc sites?

aj,Would you agree with the following statement?Use of Balling's "formula is fine for those who
wish to go to the trouble to compute TE (whose real value lies in determining attenuation)
which is only...
