Subject: Re: Evening Brewing, Morning Racking - When to pitch?
Date: 1992-04-15 21:37:06 GMT

I received three mailed responses (thanks guys) to the above
question. One said pitch after cooling (evening), one
said after racking (morning), and one quoted both Miller (pitch
in the evening - the trub's oxygen is good for the yeast), and
Fix (pitch in the morning after racking off the trub - yes the
yeast will use the trub's oxygen, but you won't like what's left
over). So the score is 1.5 to 1.5.

I'm off for a week and a half, so I won't be able to follow this
until after I'm back, but I've seen arguments both ways and I'm
wondering if a consensus is possible (assuming infection is not
an issue - which, of course, it can be).
