That’s called rehydrating. For future reference, that temperature seems a little low for rehydrating. I usually boil 1/4-1/2 cup of water, then let it cool to about 95F (35C). I sprinkle the yeast on top and let it sit (covered with some sanitized foil) for 15 minutes or so. I then add a little wort to the yeast slurry, wait a bit and add a little more to bring the temperature of the yeast slurry closer to the wort in the fermenter. I then add it to the fermenter.
I know it’s a love culture, I just gave it a kick start so it wasn’t totally shocked entering the wort mixture.Found the above tips from a number of forum posts.
I assume that’s a typo and you don’t mean “love culture.” Live culture? 09-03-2014, 06:45 PM
