134 Day Old Yeast

Post by Reignman » 5 days ago

Nothing like buying yeast that is 134 days old already. It would not bother me except I paid $11.50 for it.

I am having trouble with my yeast starter. Yeast calculators say I have only 6% viability left. Omega yeast starts with 150 B cells. I am brewing 5.5 gallons of a lager with a gravity around 1.054. Most likely need to do a step up starter though.
