The subject says it all. Should I pitch at ale or lager rates? I'm using Wyeast California Lager, OG is 1.049. The beersmith pitching rate calculator is calling for 380 billion cells, recommending a 4L starter with 2 slap packs of yeast at 82% viability. MrMalty is estimating a lower viability of 76%, calling for a 4.7L starter. That seems like overkill to me, but I've never tried this style before. When using MrMalty, should I be using the ale, lager or hybrid fermentation type? I know that you need much higher pitching rates for lagers, but does this count as one since it'll be fermented ~60F?
