I feel so guilty starting yet another Apfelwein thread, but I just couldn't search through the othe 99999999 posts!

When using the Red Star Montrachet yeast suggested by EdWort, is there a need to reconstitute it or do you just pitch the dry yeast?

Thanks!

I've pitched it dry just fine, though it makes a teensy kraeusen at the top that might need a blowoff (then again, I filled to the neck of a 5gal carboy).

I believe post # 1 states:

Open the packet of Montrachet Yeast and pour it into the neck of the funnel.
Use the remaining quart of juice to wash down any yeast that sticks.
I just reuse the yeast cake everytime, but you should be fine doing it any which way.

BTW- The instructions for this yeast (given by morebeer) state to rehydrate the yeast prior to pitching which was the source of my confusion.
