making my first barleywine extract. the instructs for the beer say to add the whole packet of yeast to the priming sugar. however the packet of yeast says to add a teaspoon. which should I do?
If you just got done boiling the wort you only add the yeast. Priming sugar is used for bottling.
If you are bottling and it suggests adding yeast, I would add a teaspoon rather then a whole packet.
no it has already sat for 6 months in the secondary. now i am about to bottle it. didn’t know being a higher ABV if it needed more casting yeast than the packet suggested (since the barleywine instructions just say mix the packet)
I guess it wouldn’t matter as long as you are careful with your priming sugar. But I don’t think you would need a whole package.
