I've used yeast that was 3.5 yrs old. I started slow. Like 500ml. Kept ranching up rather slowly. Make sure yeast is done at each stage. Took me 2 weeks but made some good beer!

I'm brewing tomorrow and have no pickling lime. I only need 4.2 grams of chalk (20 gal batch) to achieve the above. Should I go back to my original profile?

Interesting. If I use chalk instead by calculated pH raises to 5.5 and I end up with this.
I suppose I could but some of the dark malts in at the end of the mash:

Calcium: 64.2
Mg: 2.4
Sodium: 7.7
Sulfate: 21
Chloride: 0
Bicarbonate: 172.4

Thinking about this for a water profile:
Calcium: 50.3
Mg: 2.4
Sodium: 7.7
Sulfate: 21
Chloride: 12.8
Bicarbonate: 107.9

OK for a stout?
