Rehydrating yeast

Recommended Posts

I've always dry pitched my yeast but I'm curious of the the benefits of rehydrating the yeast (if any) I'm currently making the chromosome recipe and want to try it now, will it make a sufficient difference?

Will your beer ferment if you just dump in the yeast without rehydration? Absolutely 

 

is it better to acclimate the yeast to a slightly less overwhelming environment? Absolutely 

 

ive rehydrated and noticed extremely fast lag phase. Like, 5 hours after pitching, ive had almost full krausen.

 

i rehydrate for danstar but not for fermentis... not sure why

No, it will not make a sufficient, or even noticeable difference in your final product.
