Two yeasts for one split 5gallon batch?
« on: July 20, 2012, 02:27:16 PM »
Simple question.

If I make a 5 gallon 1.060 batch, split to 2.5 x2, and money is not an concern, would using a full "smack pack" be too much yeast in each?

short answer, no.

check out mrmalty.com or yeastcalc.com

in fact you are almost exacly right with 1 smack pack per batch if the yeast is fresh

+1...should be almost perfect...I pitch 3-4 for a 5.5 gal batch with no starter
