Yeast doesn't dissolve.
You can rehydrate it by mixing it with warm water, but it will not dissolve.

I saw a few flash boilers on here. I was planning to go that route back when I used to brew with natural gas. Now I'm electric, so this isn't an option for me. Thanks though.

Thanks for that link. It's confirmation that I am on the right path, and that my plan is actually feasible.

I was thinking about mounting it in the bottom, using the same method that I used to mount it in my kettle.

That's about half the speed I'd like, but I'll typically be using warmer water than 55F. I think I could get a reasonable sparge rate most of the time.

Just a follow up.

About a month ago, I tasted both beers. They were better than expected. I racked one onto cranberries and the other on raspberries. I'll taste them in a year and bottle them.

I love 1388 for Belgians. Your Irish Ale won't taste like an Irish Ale. I'd only use 1388 if you like Belgiany beers.
Also, I've found 1388 can be a slow fermentor and sometimes take over a month...
