I just want a forum where I can vent about this. I don't want to use Facebook, because my wife
would find out that this happened (and since she is asleep now, I would rather she be kept in
the dark, l...

Thank you for the link. Man, either the search function on this site sucks or I don't know how

Posted in thread: 1.084 pitch rate question on 10-15-2014 at 03:36 AM
I would actually do three packs. I like to pitch at 1 million cells/ml/degree plato like the
