Then put in a separate vessal to settle out, then decant from that to clean the yeast. Alternatively you can harvest from the bottle later but it's a bit of a pain to grow from the smaller sample.

So if I freeze a few batches of lets say 400ml X 1.060 wort when diluted to 2000ml what will the gravity be? or to be more specific what's the formula for calculating specific gravity by dilution ?Thanks
