This weekend I have a Brown Ale I'm going to bottle. I put it in a secondary a couple weeks ago to add vanilla beans, and cold crashed it when I had to leave town for the weekend and still hadn't gotten a Johnson controller.
So with being in secondary, and cold crashing I want to re-pitch some yeast just to be safe, but I had a couple questions. I used US-05 to ferment with.
How much should I re-pitch?
If I get US-05 I assume re-hydrating would be a must since to make sure it gets mixed in evenly with the beer.
To skip the re-hydrating step, would I be able to pitch a vile of liquid yeast, like WLP001?
