Instructions for pitching from Fermentis:
1 - Direct pitching:
Pitch the yeast directly in the fermentation vessel on the surface of the wort at or above the fermentation temperature. Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available to avoid clumps. Ideally, the yeast will be added during the first part of the filling of the vessel.
2 - With prior rehydration:
Alternatively, in a sterile glass, sprinkle the yeast onto 120ml of wort at 15 to 25°C. Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes, gently stir and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.
