    An awful lot of concern over something which in practice is not very important.You do need
    healthy yeast in sufficient quantity.7 sometimes 11 grams of quality dried yeast is sufficient

    ".......not just for degassing either. Racking and bottling. I can rack 5 six gallon carboys

    I can't follow much of the theory discussed in the above posts.I do know that if you are lucky
