Hell yeah! Just cracked one. About to watch the Oregon St. Beavers Rose Bowl hopes go up in flames!

EDIT: or perhaps next week.

I used pre-packaged stuff that I bought at the LHBS. It comes in 2 oz packs and is called 'Sweet Orange Zest'.

I plan on brewing this tonight and will be my 2nd AG. Wish me luck.

Curious if you hydrated the yeast for this too?

Also, the following calculator: Mr Malty Pitching Rate Calculator
Calls for only 1 11.5 gram package. What is pitching 2 of them going to do? Ferment faster? Am I going to have to work about blow off from the vigorous fermentation?

I rehydrated the yeast in 85F water for 30 mins prior to pitching. You only need one packet of yeast... dry yeast packets pack a HIGH cell count anyway, great for a 5 gallon batch.

Thanks for the information, I was almost pitching the yeast when you wrote this actually. I just followed the directions on the package, they just said to throw it in with the wort. The wort was about 74 degrees at the time, so that should have warmed it up. I kept the window cracked overnight to cool the room down to 61, so the wort was at 68 this morning and slowing bubbling 8 hours later. I also only used one package. I figured I could always throw in the second at a later time if I wanted, maybe the secondary, probably not necessary though.

I've never re-hydrated, so I'm not sure what the effect is. I pitch two packs because my pro brewer buddy says they always massively overpitch. But it's totally not necessary. I hope this beer turns out well for you! I need to get some more in the pipeline!

I am back from Mexico and getting crunk... so, anyway, I ALWAYS rehydrate, ALWAYS, if you don't, well... words cannot explain what you may be in for!
