No, just boil some, water, let it cool and pitch. No sugar needed

I try to let it cool to the same temp that I am going to pitch at. Generally 68-70ish. Not always possible depending on ambient temp, 80 should be fine though

How necessary is the stirring on the Safale yeasts? I'm a little confused as to what that does, can anyone point me in the right direction for reading up on that?

I've stopped re-hydrating dry yeast for any brew with an OG under 1.060. Never had a problem, just sprinkle on top of the wort and let it sit.

When using dry yeast I sprinkle on top of wort. No hydrating no stirring.

I am currently rehydrating Safale 05 as I write this (waiting on the wort chiller to finish). I warm the yeast packet to room temps, boil water, let it cool to about 95 degrees 30 minutes before needed and dump the yeast in. I have had very good luck rehydrating dry yeast and it seems to get fermentation started much quicker (a good thing).

YMMV,
Dan
