safale us-05 --- 1 packet --- make slurry, add with bru-vigor
Is this necessary? I've only brewed 2 batches of beer so far, and in both cases I just pitched the dry yeast. I have no experience in making slurry or using bru-vigor so I am just wondering how important this is, and what are the benefits to this as opposed to pitching dry yeast. Would there be any downsides to just pitching the US-05 without making slurry?
