First time I bought was through eBay and I said I was a forum member too which he refunded 10% which is their eBay cost and and told me to order via FB or email.Great service.

I don't think the extra pack would have made any difference to the clarity, as I don't think you end up with significantly more yeast after fermentation.
Was it a particularly high OG beer? As you wouldn't need 2 packs for a beer below 1.050.
I wouldn't call it a homebrew myth - more like accepted practise - Big beers need bigger pitching rates for best results.

The 'house' bitter - OG1045, FG 1010. Only the extra yeast could have caused the difference but I'm not moaning, just know for sure not to do it again.

I've put this link on another thread where the 1pack/2pack debate came up, but you might find it interesting:

https://www.brewersfriend.com/2012/1...tes-explained/

A single 11g pack of notty would only give you a pitch rate of around 0.2 million cells/ml/degree plato in 23L with an OG of 1.045

Interesting - thanks. I'm not trying to be awkward but my one and only venture into using 2 packs has yielded only negatives and no positives. However, I haven't sampled the beer yet (which is starbright less than a week after bottling and being as cloudy as hell at the time) so watch this space!
