WLP099 WLP575 White labs yeast

My WLP099 and WLP575 yeast has arrived from Hop and Grape. Originally there would be 100 billion cells per vial. Now I need to build up the population in two massive starters so they will be able to tackle the high¬†gravity Belgian style wort I’ll be letting them work on later.

I’ll start them off in a couple of Erlenmeyer flasks then move them into a couple of carboys as the cell count increases.
