You'll have to do the math by hand or using excel. The article below has the calculations.
You'd need to look up original cell count of the yeast packet/vial that you are going to use.

So is there a way to figure out the amount of yeast needed without going to the website and
using the yeast calculator? And no offense but still trying to figure out my original question.
How to know ...

I have been trying to read on pitching yeast and wondering how do you know if you are under
pitching or over pitching(if you can over pitch)? Using the extract kits and the packets of
yeast they come ...

I didn't mean that to come off like i doubted you, sorry if it sounded short. I know that there

Are you saying you measured the FG and got 1.10 or that's just what it's supposed to be?How
long had it been in the secondary? And idk where you heard to leave it in the secondary for one
week, the cl...

Yes. For most normal beers (and now regardless of bottling OR kegging) I plan out about 8 weeks
from grain to glass, for normal/average gravity beers. Some beers just take longer.I'm not

This is my first brew. It was in the primary for 7 days with a FG of 1.010 (its a cream ale)
and then into my secondary. I have learned that there is the big debate on using secondary but
I had alread...

True enough about nothing in your fermentor that could in "no way possible for the beer you
make to harm you or anyone else". However... depending how long the lid was off and how far you
put your hea...

You don't stir the yeast. You stir the wort, before pitching the yeast. Some brewers have
little oxygen cylinders to give a blast of oxygen to the wort, while some stir/shake/agitate
the wort. Either ...

not pitching enough yeast it really has nothing to do with aerating. However, yeast need oxygen
to multiple so it can influence the total cell count, but underpitching is the initial amount
of yeast p...
