Hi HBT friends,

I'm brewing a hefe right now. I'm planning to do a small batch of 3 gal.
I got a package of WB-06.
Do I need to pitch the whole bag? Or can I be cheap and pitch half bag for smaller batch and safe the other half for later in the fridge?

What did that cost you like $1? Pitch the whole thing. No such thing as too much yeast. If you really want to save money on yeast, wash it at the end and you can reuse.

yeah... it is not worth it to save 3.50 for a batch of beer. I'll pitch it all.
I guess I knew the answer already.
