A simple yeast cake?

I have harvested and washed a AA II from my Belgian style. I have the yeast in a mason jar, it is really great looking and clean of trub. My total volume of AA II is 100ml.

My ?? is how much of the 100ml yeast cake should I use for a 1000ml starter with 1/2 DME.

I can only brew a 5 gal. (wife wont let me get bigger equip yet) ((she will thou))

Check mrmalty.com for the amount to use. To me, the bigger question is how can you make a Belgian beer with AAII?

hahah

Denny i said A belgian style cuz i used Belgian pils (the recipe is the one i posted earlier)

I actually think it is an American Amber, right?? this beer is really awesome tasting for American Belgian something or other.

LOL

American Ale II?
If the cake is stored in the fridge and is less than 2 weeks old you can just pitch an appropriate amount of slurry. I use http://www.mrmalty.com yeast pitching calculator.

edited for spelling

American Ale II 1272 yeast I got from NB two batches of brew ago.
I really like this strain I have brew a half a dozen batches with this strain, I only started AG Brewing last yr.
So i have been trying to brew SN and SA and FT type clones.
thanks guys. for MrMalty. It just what i was looking for.

Well, just because you used Belgian malt doesn’t make it a Belgian anything!

10/ 4 Denny. hahaha.
I used the http://beercalculus.hopville.com/recipe. I framed the grain bill around a American Amber.
