If I am making a IIPA and I am using 15 lbs 2 Row at 70% effeciency making a 5 gallon batch, will a vial of WLP001 get the FG down to at least 1.014 without making a starter. I just broke a therm and I invited a random fellow homebrew advocate to brew in 2 days. I felt that I cannot make a starter and I have not enough time to make one before brew day. I am going to borrow his therm for the mashing and what not. So Can I get WLP001 to attenuate with an OG of at least 1.075 without a starter??

I plan on keeping the ferm temp between 60 and 64 F.

Thanks for the help!!

I think you may be taking a chance to get proper attenuation. White Labs recommends the yeast for an OG of 1.060. Good Luck if you decide to try.

That is a hefty OG to not have a starter. You will be lucky if you get close to your target FG. If possible buy another vial, and pitch both. If you can't get another vial, I would make a starter. Any amount of growth is going to be better than nothing.

No. Make a starter.

Funny that this post is so recent.

I just had time to rack an IPA yesterday that had an OG of 1.072. FG of 1.007!

This was a new experiment and I was wondering how the yeast would do. Evidently they were very happy.

What I did is posted here.

I didn't think 001 would take it down that far and I'm hoping I didn't dry it out to much.

Should you not be able to make a starter at least pitch 2 vials.

Has anyone had wlp001 take a higher gravity beer down this far?

Will making a starter and then pitching it in 20 hours be enough time to activate the yeast?

My PtE clone made it down to about there and I have another IIPA that is hovering close to there when I last checked with my refrac. Of course my hydrometer will be the true measure but I'm sure it's under 1010

Did it dry it out to much? My hydro sample tasted good but without being carbed up it's hard to tell.
It also took my 7.5% abv IPA up to 8.5%
