I split mine based on what I read and used 50ml in a regular beer and will use 50ml in my entry

I got four batches out of one pack without making any starters. All were criminally under-pitched by typical yeast standards. I'll probably wash up some from the most recent batch to keep on hand. I'm loving it.

Same here (pitch rate)...I kept rereading, because there was no way this amount could ever work...I was wrong lol

I seriously under pitched mine at 0.25M/mL, but this yeast DGAF, it's blowing hard through my blowoff tube!

Edit: I'm gonna try to harvest and dry the yeast out to toss it in the freezer afterwards.

Friday night I brewed a pale ale with it, 10 gallons, pitched about 2-3 tablespoons that hadn't been revitalized at all, fermented at 35-38C. Saturday morning it was going hard and I dumped a fresh 10 gallons onto the first 10 (in a big Speidel). Just took a gravity reading, 1.012. It's a beast. I will say that for my comp batch, the stress didn't quite give me the flavour results I was hoping for, but it was also in a style that had many competing flavours and might have just been masked somewhat.

I used half the yeast pack without stepping it up and now I think I massively over-pitched! It was blowing hard in just a couple of hours and I'm pretty sure it was all but done in 6-8 hours!

Mine went all out, and was at 47c by the time I checked. Thought I had killed it, but we just pitched some into another beer and it's going nuts again. On the first batch, it appears to have completed in under a day, amazing stuff.

Bottling tomorrow too. I had made a starter with it and it smelled/tasted sour so I didn't use that yeast that brew day. I ended up bottom cropping from @mattdentremont's brew.

Gave it 8 days to ferment a Kolsch style beer @ 25c -> 28c with 0.5c increments each 12h. It surprisingly does taste like kolsch, just crashing it with gelatin while carbing for 2 days and I'll get my bottles in by the skin of my teeth
