from the website of a south african microbrewer i met while i was over there (makes a great altbier!):


Krausening
The traditional German KraŘsening method involves adding 10% actively fermenting wort at the secondary fermentation stage. This addition of KraŘsen produces changes in beer composition, especially the removal of diacetyl and aldehydes.

From Charlies Book....

How much gyle do you use to prime? Gyle( qrts): wort without pitched yeast.

gyle = (12 x gallons)/((S.G.-1) x 1000))

example:

gyle = (12*5)/((1.040-1)*1000))

gyle = 60/40

gyle = 1.5 quarts

Two Assumptions:

1.) You prime with a rate of 3/4 cup of corn sugar per 5 gallons.

2.) The gallons are what you have to work with to collecting gyle from the batch or the starting batch size.

There is another important point to consider. How much do you loose in racking.
