Yes I just guess and I know I'm wrong but it still works.

Related question but a little off topic.

I have heard that when pitching onto a cake you want to pitch onto a cake that came from a lower gravty beer is this a good general rule?

I currently have 2 beers going. One is a Bee Cave IPA and another in an American Wheat (Both with S-05). I plan on brewing a Old Rasputin Clone this weekend which calls for an American Ale yeast. Which cake would be better to pitch onto? I know the American Wheat has much more trub and hop bits from the BK cause I didn't use a bag for them and I dumped everything into the fermenter. However the IPA should have less since I used a bag and kept most trub in the BK.

Which cake should I pour my Old Rasputin onto?

Plan to pour wort on top of a yeast cake. I am using the same kind of dark ale. Should be fine since it is the same recipe? Right?

Make sure your wort is cool enough when you add it or you will get to see explosive fermentation. Your yeast cake has way more than the recommended amount of yeast for the next ferment and will easily get out of hand.
