so........what you're saying is don't make a starter and don't aerate? or is it do make a starter and don't aerate? wait maybe it's make a starter and aerate. Yeah, it's either that or don't make a starter and do aerate.

Got it, thanks for the advice! :-)

Or just go buy a 4-pack of DFH! Wait, it's over-rated. Maybe that's a different thread...

I think what we all learned here is to stop telling n00bs that their beer has stalled at 1.030 because they didn't aerate with dry yeast. Especially after they tell us it's fermenting at 50f with 5lbs of crystal malt in it.

I think saying do what works for you is too black and white.Its way too hard to tell if wether or not aerating or not did good or bad for your beer.Oxygen is gennerally good for yeast, ive seen a few brands that say its not neccessary,and people that have no problem with it.Sometimes you dont know whatto do that what works for you,involves whether its pitch rate,starters,aerating,water ph.etc...... Im still not shure but have a good assumption my water has more to do with anything really. But that is not doing what works for me,because i still dont know., In the mean time there is always still good beer to drink. And this post may have just made every body all the dumber for reading it,ha.

Nah, I actually take Sam's side in that one. I was just trying to stir things a little more. Dunno why. This thread has turned into an opportunity to be ridiculous.

I guess I'm a bit late to the party.

Safale us-04 says to sprinkle directly into the wort. It doesn't say anything about rehydrating. I do agree that the instructions are messed up. I don't understand why whitelabs says a vile is good for 5 gallons of 1.060 wort and then works with Jamil with his calculator and a book saying the opposite. I have a hard time believing what they are saying with so many contradictions.

That said, I'll have to try not aerating next time I use dry yeast since people's results seem to back up the no aeration thing. Since it really is all about the beer, use what works.
