Default Dry Yeast HELP!!! ASAP

Boiling now so I need this answered asap, I was planning on pitching safbrew dry yeast WS-06 but I went to the website and it said I have to rehydrate I thought I could just sprinkle in how I usually do the liquid after I aerate. The website says to sprinkle and let sit 30 minutes and then aerate the wort? Is this correct? How should I pitch this yeast dry??? I am nervous because I have no aeration stone, I was going to whisk after dumping cooled wort into bucket from kettle for aeration and then pitch. :/

with dry yeast there is no "need" to aerate due to the large amount of yeast. You can areate and that will help; and you can rehydrate and that will help as well.

Also, Aeration by just capping the bucket and shaking/rocking on the bucket edge for 15 minutes works good too

Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy: No matter what you do, it'll end up great. Seriously.

Best to "rehydrate" dry yeast, but you can just dump it in and (especially for a german hefe, the most estery of beers) it'll be fine.

[thanks Luke]

Its the subject of much debate. Brew Your Own did a fairly extensive article on it a couple months back and wasn't able to conclude anything definitive despite various experiments and studies. In brief summary, you can hydrate, not hydrate, aerate, not aerate, any differences will be minimal at most, and it wasn't consistent or absolute what was best or worst.

i use wb-06 all the time with no special eqpt. i pitch it into the fermenter and just swish it around a little. it's great, and neighbors love it

Thanks guys I have calmed down a bit now, I am boiling water and thinking of rehydrating but still not sure which way I am going to go as I have never rehydrated before, sprinkling it on sounds so much easier. As far as the brew I am working with what I have, I got 6 lbs. of dark belgian wheat, 5 lbs. of Canadian two-row, ounce of hallertau 60 minutes, and throwing in a .25 oz of liberty for 45 min. Any thoughts on how this will taste?

Almost every bit of evidence I've seen shows that re-hydration will results in substantially more live yeast after pitching.

Whether that makes a difference is the debate.

make the wort, cool it, put it in primary, shake the primary to get some good bubbles, put your funnel on, drop the yeast in, shake the primary some more gently. Let it sit for 2-3 weeks. You'll be fine.
