Information from White Labs:

PurePitch® Next Generation is designed to pitch at a rate of 7.5 million cells/mL, a commercially recommended pitching rate for standard ale ranges. 


Our easy recommendations work for most fermentations, but we recommend doubling your pitch rate when starting your fermentation below 61℉/16℃ OR at a higher gravity of 18P (1.074 OG) or higher. If your fermentation has both, we recommend tripling your pitch rate
