Based on recommended pitch rates on packets=
US-05 one packet = 5.2 gallons to 7.9 gallons
BRY-97 one packet = 2.9 gallons to 5.8 gallons
*US-05, 11.5 gram packet (pitch rate 11.5g in 20-30 Liters)
*BRY-97, 11 gram packet (pitch rate .5 - 1g per Liter)
This would explain longer lag times using one packet BRY-97 for larger batches,
and shorter lag times in smaller batches. One US-05 yeast packet covers more
gallons per packet than BRY-97, according to their own stated pitch rates. Which
also accounts for longer lag times using BRY-97 vs US-05, in same sized batches.
This is if both yeasts have the same viability, and I'm not sure how lag times
affect the fermentation/beer.
