Going to rehydrate

(1/7) > >>

weazletoe:
  I'm gonna brew a bitter today. US-05 is my good ole' go to yeast. Quite honestly, my palate cannot pick out big differences in yeast. Yet. So, I just stick with 05, because I know it. I'll have an OG of 1038, so I am just going to pitch one pack. I've nver rehydrated before, but after to listening to some old "Sunday Session" podcasts, I think I am going to try it, and form my own opinion on he idea of it. Worst that can happen, is I make beer.  :D

bluesman:
I sprinkle it right on top of the wort. I have good success with it. I know alot of folks rehydrate and have good results as well. I don't know if it makes any difference.

denny:
Rehydrate away if you want to, but be careful with the temp.  Dan Listermann said years ago that he advised his customers to skip rehydration becasue so many of them were killing the yeast by using too high a temp.

weazletoe:
Good to know Denny. I will definitely watch that. I figure I should at least try rehydrating once for myself. For no other reason than to say I did it, and can ell everyone else not to.  ;D
