I have recently moved to dry yeast as starters are getting to be hard to do. I have a 1bbl system and it was taking 3-5 days to get a proper starter. My question is that Fermentis says in the product detail sheet that the yeast is 6x10^11 cells/gm If I use that for cell count in the calculator that gets me to 250-300gm for a 1.058 IG beer at 35gal vol But the product detail sheet tells me 50-80gm/hL 35gal~1.2hL. So on the high end that is 96gm for the batch. I ask specifically as I have a 1.058 IG Oatmeal Stout in the fermenter now at 68d F I pull off 5L of wort and rehydrate the yeast on a stir plate for 45min I put in 250gm of Safale S-04 It is third day and after two days of really active fermentation it has slowed. I pulled off about 3/4 gal of thick foam from the top port in the conical. Worried I may have over-pitched. I am cold crashing tonight so I will see how it is Sun when I go to keg it. Any thoughts on the pitch rate in the calculator vs the manufacturer's recommendation? I usually go with the calculator as agree with the calculations, but limited time using dry yeast.
