How many batches have I gotten out of a single yeast purchase? I think my 1272 culture is on something like 13.

Repitching from harvested slurry, though, I've only done three "generations". Mostly just because I don't brew often enough for that to be a time-saver. I'd usually have to make a starter anyway.
