I can't understand this! How to you rehydrate it and it becomes a liquid....then you sprinkle a it??? wtf?? That makes no sense.
Please someone explain the process.
i will simplify things...just pitch the dry yeast into the beer...
I have been using S-05 for all of my ales and anything OG of 1.06 and below I pitch one packet anything bigger I do 2 packets...works like a charm. Never was a fan of rehydrating the yeast..and fermentis stuff is so good..never need to..
just my 2 cents.(Sorry I didn't actually answer your question but thought this was better)
To rehydrate you add the dry yeast to sterile water and let it sit..the yeast will hydrate and become cream(looks like cream)..than pitch the liquid creamish yeast to the wort.)
