I cracked open the first bottle from my first batch today, and it came out pretty good. It was made from a Brewer's Best IPA kit with the dry yeast, which I rehydrated for a while before I pitched it.
At the bottom of the bottle after I pour, there is a yeast layer which is undisturbed by the pouring. I was expecting to have to pour it gently to avoid disturbing the yeast, but the stuff just says put until I rinse the bottle.
I was wondering if this yeast condition was normal, or if it tells you experts anything about the beer that I'd be interested to know (like was the yeast super effective, or very ineffective, or...?)
