Pitching rate for a 2.5 gal batch


I’m going to try brewing a 2.5 gallon batch of a rye stout, with projected OG of 1.044. I’ll be using Wyeast 1450 Denny’s Favorite. Would it be okay to pitch the entire smack pack? What are the consequences of overpitching the yeast?

There are no consequences in a 2.5-gallon batch. Go ahead and pitch the whole pack if you want. You’re fine.

Pitch it all. No negative consequences in doing so.

Excellent. Simple is good. Thanks, guys.
