Obviously I'm a noob and I plan on brewing my first extract batch tomorrow, American Wheat. I've been reading John Palmer's book "How to Brew" 3rd edition and he talks about rehydrating yeast in the book. He says this is a better techinque that will give you a better shot with the yeast than just sprinkling it on top of the wort and stirring it in. So I'm asking all of you out there, what do you think? I plan on following the directions for the most part besides this step, but I'm still gonna take a few things from his book and use them on my first brew. I've got my stuff sanitizing right now and I plan on letting it sit overnight just to be safe as he says having it sit longer than the 1 hour won't hurt anything.
