Hi everyone I brew with two craft FV and my question is what effects would be if I added a whole packet of yeast from a brew can instead of weighing out half for each FV. Sorry if it's a dumb question for you guys but I am a rank novice at the moment.

If I'm not mistaken, I think the craft yeast packets are 5g, and the normal are 7g? So I reckon you're better off using the whole packet rather than half anyway.

I pitch the entire pack when I split batches and have never had a problem. Usually dry pitched as I figure the extra amount of yeast will neatly compensate for the dry pitch losses.

I then reuse some of the slurry for the second half of the can later on.

Thanks happy chappies I did not realise the yeast packets were so close in weight. I'll go with your advice. Thanks again
