Equivalent pitchsize at standard 7,500,000 cells/ml concentration
Estimated number of cells needed
We recommend 750,000 cells/ml/P for ales, with progressively higher cell densities used for lagers and higher gravity fermentations. This calculator is only an estimate for your batch and is based on our experiences as professional brewers fermenting different styles across many temperatures and gravities. Tank geometry, glycol jacket location, aeration, and other process variables can affect the recommended pitch rate. If you would prefer to specify a unique cell concentration for your batch, please share that information and we will gladly provide the requested density and volume.
