---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 13 Jun 2006 08:14:58 -0500 From: "golgothus" <golgothus at comcast.net> Subject: RE: Pitching rates for high gravities In Digest #5020 (June 11, 2006), David Edge of Derby, UK asked about Pitching Rates for High Gravities: "Pitching 64 packs of yeast into a barley wine seems just a shade extravagant. Does anyone have a more practicable heuristic please?" I have found the following web sites to be invaluable in determining pitching rates, the starter size necessary and the reasoning behind making a starter with a magnetic stirrer. The third site discusses building starters for Big Beers (anything 8% ABV or above) Proper Yeast Pitching Rates Calculator: http://www.mrmalty.com/pitching.php Info on Starters and using Magnetic Stirrers: http://www.maltosefalcons.com/tech/MB_Raines_Guide_to_Yeast_Culturing.php Thinking Big: Getting a Handle on Brewing Big Beers: http://www.maltosefalcons.com/tech/brewingbig.php I hope this helps some!
