4 pkgs of yeast

Looking at an Oktoberfest. Recipe calls for 4 pkgs of Oktoberfest lagger blend #2633 for a 5 gal batch. This seems like a lot of yeast. I usually only use 1 pkg per 5 gal.

Someone please educate me on this

Thanks

You could make a starter. Use a pitch rate calculator

Like what brewcat says. Make a starter. And calculate how big your starter needs to be. 4 packs of dry yeast seems lots

2633 is liquid…what temp do you plan to ferment at?

53-56 degrees F

Would definitely make a large starter and pitch it at high krausen.
