Is a mixing plate/magnetic stirrer needed with liquid yeast or is it just dry yeast starters that gain benefit from them???? Read post that good aeration kit plus starter by stir plate was the bomb in healthy fermentation actiivty/
The MrMalty calculator follows the industry rule of thumb of 75 million cells per mL per °Plato for ales. One °Plato x 4 is the approximate equivalent to OG.Is there any good basic explanation of that pitching calc? I thought I was kind of smart but that thing confounds me..
Example, Making an Ale with a 1.056 OG for a 5.5gal Batch says I need 215 Billion cells (ok?), but what I dont get is it says I need 2.33L of starter?
Is that 2L of slurry total, or 2L of Wort/Yeast?
