I would agree with you. I think 2x10e8/ml is about the highest density you can achieve with optimal conditions. To be honest, I just assume about 1-2x10e8/ml as max density when brewing. After all, I'm not publishing my results, I'm drinking them

I think that's a safe assumption as long as you're starting your culture at a concentration higher than 20e6/ml, as illustrated when you express the data as below.

Thanks. I appreciate the feedback. Especially from the originator of the thread. By the way, I did get promoted to Premium but what do I do with it. I'm not too interested in arguing with folks in the debate forums ;-)

LoL. Well, you should at least browse the boneyard for a minute

Yeah, I liked how you pointed out that some of the methods needed further testing. I had planned on doing something similar by revising this thread but I just didn't feel like a major re-write was warranted until more data came in. You left the door open for improvement and hopefully you can edit if and when the process evolves. Plus, now the information is readily available independent of the search function and hopefully folks will benefit from it.

Brewitt / Forkhead,

How are you mixing your glycerine solution? % v/v or w/v. The reason I ask is becasue v/v is a higher concentration than w/v. I'm ready to freeze up a bunch of jars of pacman and was contemplating how much glycerine to use. I already have a couple sterile jars of 60% and 50% w/v solution. I'm going to dilute them and was wondering what you guys have been doing.

Thanks forkhead. Brewitt suggests mixing glycerine 4:1 in his article, so I'm pretty sure he's using v/v as well.

Boil it like you would starter wort.
