That was the difference between a 24, and a 2 hour lag time. (insert your own rim shot here)

I seem to have a shorter lag time when I rehydrate yeast. Maybe its just in my head ::)

Maybe, maybe not....I guess I figure my lag is short enough without rehydrating.  In reality, I haven't noticed a whole lot of difference between a 2 hour lag and a 24 hour lag.
well. Denny, it gives me peace of mind... :P

LOL that's a riot.

Hydrator here. Seems my beer got better when I started doing it. No appreciable diff in lag times though. I think at least some of that involves temp and gravity.

 Well, after following DENNY's advice, I decided not to rehydrate. I'm not at 13 hours and no sign of fermentation yet. Thanks DENNY. You ruined my beer DENNY. Have you even ever made a decent beer? Sheesh..... ;D
