Default Nottingham Yeast.. Rehydration Required??

I just made a brews best kit that included Nottingham yeast, and followed the instruction and simply pitched the yeast into the wort as the instructions stated... After doing so I read the yeast instructions (OK a little late)... It said NOT to pitch the yeast directly into the wort..

Does anyone have an idea if this is a problem??

Wouldn't worry. Many of us pitch Nottingham that way (I do it every time I use Notty) with no issues.

Thanks for the info.. I was hoping that this would not be a problem, but I have noticed threads talking about nottingham being slow (or something along those lines).. Reading these I had concerns about not following the instructions

Quick Question..
About how long before you noticed activity?? I am using a bucket (vs carboy) and I can not see what is happening (after 12 hrs).. I am use to seeing some activity with other yeasts within the first 8hrs or so...

I have the fermenter in a swamp cooler bath at 64*.. So I am thinking this might also be contributing to the lack of activity (starting) as well.

Nottingham is slower. I think it will start up around 12 hours and give you some nice krausen around 36 hours. Is it bubbling yet? Don't panic until after 48+ hours. The temp is cool, so you are correct in your assumption. My hour estimates above are based on 69 (a randomly chosen number) degrees.
