Basically, you are pitching a certain number of cells into your wort (X) which then grows to a larger number of cells (Y) during the growth phase.

If you calculate Y as the max cell density per liter of wort and estimate X, there is a formula you can use to determine how many growth cycles it takes for X cells to become Y cells.

It isn’t really necessary.
