With reference to:
I am getting ready to recover yeast from one of my batches using this method. My question is about my next batch....My OG's are usually around 1.065-73, and the Wyeast liquid recommends using one smackypack up to 1.060 -- I have taken to using 1qt. starter a couple of days in advance, but since I am getting ready to recover 4 pts of yeast, for my next batch, assuming I use a starter again to the tune of 1 qt for one pt of recovered yeast, will that cover a 5.25 gal batch at, say, 1.070?
I realize that I probably should have posted this under 'Ingredients', but, hey, I'm doing AG and I suspect you folks have been doing this a lot longer than I have...
