My understanding is that 1.5-2 packs is pretty much the average "correct" pitch for most dry
yeast, but you're better off with starters anyway, in my book.Man, I wish I was told that
standard before I...

Also bring that temp down next time, s-04 gets funky on me even in the low 70s. Next time pitch
