I know, I know...haste makes waste, and I'm afraid that's what I did to 1/3-1/2 of my Danstar BRY-97 yeasties when I forgot to rehydrate them. :drunk: Here's the numbers:

OG: 1.069
Pitching temp: 72 degrees
Batch size:5.5 gallons
Number of packets used: 2
Time pitched: 10:30 EST

Here's the (2) scenarios I am thinking of:

1) Wait it out

2) Rehydrate my 6 grams of Muntons Active Bewing "Emergency Yeast" that's been in the fridge since August. The best used date on the package is 09-2013

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, if I use the Muntons yeast, will it affect my flavor profile? TRUST ME...this will not happen again!!
