Just for the record I did too (rehydrate).

So who has actually drank their brews with BRY-97 yet? I just stumbled on this yeast on Farmhouse Brewing and am a big fan of dry yeasts but lag times, etc, etc aren't what really count... it's the finished BEER!

Tasted my sample of American Amber ale.

Hit 1.013 FG (sample still had some co2 in solution, so it could be lower)

Tasted like a clean ferment, and slightly dry, and with .5lb or so or brown sugar in the recipe, it should be a drier amber ale. Should get kegged within a week or so and put on tap 2 days after that.

At this point early in the tasting/beer process, I can't see why I'd buy this over us05. I'm still reserving final judgment until after this beer is kegged and carbed.

I also rehydrated, I haven't tasted the brew yet, but after 2 weeks it's down to 1.010 from 1.070. I'm going to use this again in a session IPA and pitch it dry to see how it goes.

I've got a pack going in my Pliny the Elder clone. I rehydrated and, contrary to Lallemand's instructions, aerated the wort. I experienced the 48 hour lag as well. I saw slight signs of activity at about 40 hours, but thought I'd help the little guys out a bit more and rehydrated again at that point. At 48 hours I saw vigorous activity. I'm 5 days in since I pitched the yeast and it's still chugging away. I was surprised at how dark the slurry was when I rehydrated it compared to the pack of Nottingham I rehydrated the day prior.

I did the Enkidu Winter Ale from AHS with the BRY-97, double pitched and oxygenated with 20 second burst w/ 2 micron stone and it was krauesening like a madman after 24hrs, good activity before that. Almost had some blow off, not using blow off tube, but had some debris in my air lock. The yeast was rehydrated as well. This was Friday so results won't be in for awhile heh.
