Cheers guys.Dan, i just pitched a mild onto the yeast cake. I'm guessing massive overpitch
then?I really don't know. It all depends on where the idea that "lager pitching rates are good

Thing is, the yeast pitching calculators aren't programmed for Brett. Brett has 5-7x the cell
density capabilities that Sacch does. So, an actual lager rate for a 5 gallon batch of 1.060
wort is actua...

I have used probiotics before, and it has taken 7 to 8 days at 100 F, but it did a great

Sounds like a good plan for what you want to do. The Belgian mix won't produce much acidity if
you pitch it after you've done a primary with Sacch. My only change would be to use a Belgian
or Saison y...

For whatever it is worth, over on MTF the Omega Lacto blend has pretty much been declared the
best commercial Lacto blend you can get. It produces higher acidity in a shorter amount of time
with some ...
