Brewing Best Practices – Pitch Temperature


  • You can grow your starter at room temperature.
  • Whether or not you decant the spent wort on top of your yeast is up to you.
  • At pitch your yeast should be within five degrees (F) of your wort.
  • It’s best to pitch a few degrees cooler than your target fermentation temperature and let the yeast warm up than to pitch a few degrees warmer and cool the yeast down.
