Lacto to Yeast Ratios for Berliner
So I am getting ready to brew up a split batch of Berliner weiss tomorrow, one of the buckets will receive an activator pack of the wyeast Berliner blend, and the other will be brewed according to the Brewing with Wheat book, by pitching a 5:1 Lacto to sacc ratio. Right now I have a finished 1800ml starter of lacto, and I was wondering the best way to approximate the 5:1 recommendation, as starter size doesnt seem to be appropriate since the growth rates of the two organisms is so different. Thanks for the help!

Re: Lacto to Yeast Ratios for Berliner
Last time I brewed it I used the 3:1 ratio as recommended by Kristen England. I was very approximate in that it was based roughly on slurry volume. I grew up the lacto in a 1 liter starter and pitched a single tube of sacch.

Re: Lacto to Yeast Ratios for Berliner
I have had good results with pitching a 2qt lacto starter (slurry only) into my no boil BW wort only cooled to 100 degrees and letting that rip for 40 hrs or so before cooling the fermenter to ale pitching temps and pitching my sacch. strain (german ale). At 3 mos the beer is nicely sour and gaining more complexity.
