Special Procedures

-Yeast built up from frozen sample of WY2112.  The frozen sample was thawed and the clear liquid discarded.  The remaining yeast was added to a 500ml starter and fermented for 2 days.  Then, the yeast cake was added to another 500ml starter.  Finally, the yeast was added to a 2000ml starter.  At completion, this cake was slightly less than a smack pack fermented out in a 2000ml starter.
