Hey all, found a whiskey barrel double bock recipe I want to try. It's for a 12 gallon batch that I'm making for 6 gallon. Halving the grains and hops was easy but it calls for two separate types of lager yeast. Do I go ahead and pitch both into my 6 gallons of wort? Is there a way to half the yeast?
Thanks, Frank

Does it definitely call for two types or yeast, or is it recommending two strains that you can use one or the other? Just asking because I made that mistake with my first brew years ago, kit listed two possible yeasts and I added both.
