Estimated number of cells needed

Standard pricing at a pitch rate of 7,500,000 cells/ml for 12P wort, fermented at ale temperatures.

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. As such, pricing and pitch rate are not fixed. We always recommend confirming with a member of our lab staff when using our pitch and pricing calculator. 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.
