Hi there !

I calculated the pitching rate using two Online Programms , but they gave me different results !

mrmalty --> 2 gramms of dry yeast

Brewtility --> 1.4 gramms of dry yeast

I'm a little bit confused . I wrote the same data for these Programms .

Which one should I trust ?!

Hector

2 grams is a miniscule amount of yeast. Most dry yeast packages are 11.5 grams. Use one package- you won't go wrong. Unless you are using old liquid yeast or have a high OG, don't worry about the calculators.

2 grams? Are you brewing a single gallon of beer?

Type = ale

Vol. = 0.8 Gallons

O.G. = 1.050

Pitching rate = 1.4 or 2 grams of dry yeast ?!

Do you realize that .8 gallons is 8.5 beers, IF you were able to lose absolutely no beer to trub loss? In reality you're making a 6 pack.

If you really did make a batch that small you wouldn't need much yeast at all, just a fraction of one pack, maybe 1/4 or less. So 2 grams sounds perfect.

You probably have your reasons for making a small batch, but consider the time and effort for the small return.
