Everything I can find about the negative effects of over pitching yeast talks almost
exclusively about knocking out onto YEAST CAKE. However, all I did was accidentally
miscalculate and pitch 3 instea...

That can happen for sure. I use a one piece air lock and that avoids that issue.Which brings up
another issue, the introduction of O2.This is why I stopped cold crashing. You're oxidizing

I brewed up a 1.070 maibock yesterday and hit it with 90 seconds of pure o2 once it reached the
ferm temp (50 degrees). I pitched a huge starter of 2206 Bavarian Lager and let her ride.

2-5gal. cornies w/ 2.5 each. I would purge w/CO2 first then rack the beer. Is there a concern

corny, cold crashed and added gelatin. Today (3 days after adding gelatin) I transferred to

OK, good to know. I am seeing the pressure level change a bit, as the water level delta is
growing. That is a good sign!Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.I agree. You're going to be

Yeah, the first thing I thought after reading these posts was that I had a bad seal, so I
