help adjusting yeast pitch in my recipe design BeerSmith
« on: November 08, 2011, 12:38:39 PM »
im making my first bath with White Labs 001 and while designing the recipe i noticed that is not calibrated or something wrong becouse acording to the OG  in the recipe 1.065 it calculates that i have to use 16 vials of yeast!! damn!
I checked the yeast cell count according to BS and dont seems to be a problem with that. But, in the yeast tab right beside the recipe design tab, there is a inconsistency in the cell count and the starter calculation.

any idea to help me calibrate this thing here??

I don't use the beersmith pitching calculator but have to checked to see if there is a lager/ale/hybrid setting somewhere? also does it take into account the manufacture date of the yeast?

check the production date for the yeast (double click on it in the ingredients/recipe tab) its probably defaulted to a very old date.

thanks for comments, i checked it in Mr Malty and gone well
but im still trying to configure in BeerSmith becouse the vial doesnt have the production date and instead of that it has the "Best before December 2012" legend

according to white labs, its 4months prior to the best before date   ;)
