Tip of the month – rehydrating yeast with water or wort

How should you rehydrate your Fermentis dry yeast ? With Water or Wort ?

Both water and wort can be used. Whatever you choose. Make sure your media is STERILE

If you choose wort:
After the wort has been boiled for at least 15 minutes, collect the volume required for rehydration and leave to cool to the required temperature. Rehydrate the dry brewing yeast for at least 30 minutes.
The rehydration should end at the same time as you start transferring the wort to the fermentation vessel. Pitch immediately into the tank after checking the temperature of the wort.

Happy brewing !
