Pitching yeast onto wort is so, yesterday.

I always pitch my wort onto my yeast.

Y'all need to take this to more of a literal meaning and actually pitch your yeast. I make a challenging game out of it and try to throw curve balls and sliders, but stay away from the spit balls for fear of infection.

What? No response today? C'mon gang. We can't let this meaningless thread die out!! I mean, surely you all are at least aerating your yeast by shaking the packet of yeast before you pitch it!

I make a 5 gallon starter. Then I don't even have to brew beer. I call it no-brew pitching. It's the latest awesome-alternative-cutting-edge-unique method. You have to use pre-hopped yeast, though.

earlier people were talking about how the liquid yeast companies say that their yeast is ready to pitch for 5 gallon batches below 1.060. my thought on this is that they don't want to have to sell larger pouches for more money because people new to brewing wouldn't want to spend that much money as liquid yeast is expensive as is. They'd just go with the dry stuff.
