Is that what you're looking for?The number of yeast cells depends only on the volume of beer and its OG. The age of your yeast and the starter method determines the number of litres of ~1.038 wort you need to use as a starter.
Quote from: Beermonger on September 24, 2015, 03:01:13 pmIt depends on if you shook manually (or not at all) or used a stirplate.With a stirplate, it looks like 1.6 l should have been enough (first image).If you were manually shaking it, then you might need to do another step of about 1.8 l (second image)That's I assuming I have all the parameters right in the calculator (this one http://www.brewunited.com/yeast_calculator.php but they should all give mostly similar results).
