It says they kilned them for 24 hours at 55 degrees C (131 F) and then ground them into a flour. I think if they were heated much higher than this like potato flakes probably have been the enzymes...

It's a fairly high gravity so a starter would be a good idea, but I just dumped mine in because a fly got in my last yeast starter. If you don't use a starter be sure to aerate the wort.
