Soooo It will work off the 1 pack of 100billon , But I will not get all the way down to my FG ???

Or is it that it will take longer to acumulate mor yeast cells for the full fermentation ???

it might take another few days, and you might have some extra esthers* produced, but you should be fine as is. It's a good idea to use proper pitching rates in the future, but this one will be ok.

*you might not even notice, depending on how sensitive your palate is.

I'll be very interested in how this goes for you. Please keep us updated on fermentation. I've had really bad luck with the lagers I've underpitched.
