So after 4 years of home brewing i'm finally making my first yeast starer. I just want to check my math and get second opinions.
here are the details
12gal batch going into fermenter
estimated OG 1.058
using 1pkg of wyeast 1056 (pkg on 12/25/17), brewing this sunday
looking for a pitch rate of 0.5-.75/ equally target yeast count of min of 324 billion cells.
I'm thinking of 2.5l starter at a gravity 1.035? that should give the correct cell count? these number are from brewer's friends yeast starter calc.
Also i'm using the malestrom plate with 5 speeds, what is the best speed option for proper aeration.
