I’m about to brew a beer that’s allegedly around 10% ABV. I plan on using Wyeast 1056 and have been told by an acquaintance at a homebrew club that I need to pitch more yeast than what comes in a Wyeast pack to get the appropriate FG.
-Is he right? Will going from ~1.100 to ~1.025 be an issue with 100B Wyeast 1056 cells?
-If so, should I pitch more yeast when the worst goes into the primary or wait until some point into primary fermentation to pitch more yeast?
-Should I forgo pitching more yeast and just use a nutrient blend?
I’ve only made seven batches but never had any trouble hitting the intended OG and FG. I get the feeling the acquaintance was blowing hot air. I don’t care to spend an extra $5-$10 to make sure it works so I’d rather be on the safe side.
