    I'm planning on doing a IIPA 10 gal batch & splitting it and doing 5 gal as a Mango IIPA....my
    question is with the mango.....my plan was to split the beer 5/4 gal in fermenters and add 1
    gal of fresh...

    Supper old thread revival. How were the vanguard hops for the 60 min addition? I'm Doing a APA
    tomorrow using vangard as a bittering hop.

    Yes, that is right. 1.5L of wort is going to produce a set amount of cells, regardless of the
    starting cell count.But..... when starting with that small of a colony, it's best to step up at
    least a co...

    The older the yeast, the lower the viability and as viability decreases, cell count becomes
    less of a factor. This is why when I save yeast from a starter, I only shoot for 30-50B cells.
    By the time I...

    I was just revisiting my old thread playing around with the yeast calculator...and according to
    it, my initial yeast count hardly matters at all, right? For instance, if i start with 50B
    cells @ 20% v...

    Yeah, that's pretty much how I do it. I actually start with clean yeast harvested from a
    previous starter, but the process is the same... Start with an estimated cell count and
    viability date and use ...

    So.....if my washed yeast looks like this ~1.5oz=44ml=105 (2.4 / ml) billion cells would be my
    start point?If it's 2 mo old that gives me 59% viability and 61.95 billion cells and so on from
    there????...

  • Posted in thread: Mr Malty calculator with washed yeast? on 12-10-2014 at 11:37 PM
    Yes, you have the right idea. If you're within 10-15% of the cell count, that would be close
    enough. Change it to use Kai's strirplate option and you should have more than you need
    anyway.I do the f...

    What mrmalty considers slurry is unwashed yeast straight from the fermenter. I would only use
    that option if direct pitching slurry.When using clean yeast to step up a starter, you would be
    better ser...

  • Posted in thread: Mr Malty calculator with washed yeast? on 12-10-2014 at 06:12 PM
    I've been washing yeast using this method for a couple years now: generally use the washed
    yeast from 1 jar in a 1.7L (ish) 1.035 (ish) starter on stirplate for 24 (ish) hours, cold
    crashed & decant...
