Good luck on your first batch!
Thank you very much. Trying to get as many questions I have answered to prep... And yeast is one area was little lost on...
In regards to pitching of the yeast, does the wort temp need to be at the 65-68 temp as well or would 70 be fine to pitch ???
And it is recommended to hydrate the yeast before pitching ? Using forum on my smart phone so unable to use search info for this question... I'm sure is asked all the time
