Alright, so I completed my first all grain batch yesterday. I pitched my yeast (US 05) at ~70 degrees F at 3pm. I came home at around 10pm and saw that there was a dry pocket of yeast on top...so I rocked the carboy back and forth and shook up the dry yeast. Since then I haven't seen the dry yeast and the air lock is bubbling about every few seconds. I don't know if there is anything else I should do or not?
Is there anything I should do?
Also, is there anything I should do the next time to avoid this issue?
Thanks - Adam
