    I am wondering about the Yeast pitching calculator with reference to the slurry option. Dose the calculator assume that the slurry is washed or just put straight in from the fermenter.
    Thanks

    thats a good question, you really have no idea how many cells are in any slurry so it really doesn't matter, if its a washed slurry my practice is count half the cell count for the same amount used than new, and that really depends on how old it is
