Yes, very good info to know. My next brew (my 4th), I'm planning to brew a Baltic Porter. Any other tips?
Baltic Porter is one beer that you could brew a smaller batch first (say, 1.045-1.060) and then pitch directly on the yeast cake, assuming you can cool the temp if the said beer down to pitching temp. For lager, you would want to go at least 55 degrees. For ale yeast at least low 60s.
