Question about yeast prep
 
I soaked the dry yeast in warm water for 15 min and it started to foam.
Is this a sign that the yeast is good or do I need to add a little wort to the yeast and wait another 15?

Nope, that means that the yeast if good to go!

foaming is good .... now try to match temperatures of your yeast to your wort (within 5 degrees) before you pitch.... but don't make any severe temperature changes quickly.... just let them reach wort temp.
