Dry Yeast Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find the questions we get asked the most regarding our dry yeasts.
Please click on one of the questions below to see the answer.

Dry Yeast Usage

Is it recommended to rehydrate dry yeast?

A big part of homebrewing comes down to what works best for you and also following producers' recommendations. We would encourage you to read instructions before use.

Do I need to rehydrate the yeast before pitching?

Typically, dry yeasts do not need to be rehydrated before use and can be pitched directly into our fermenters. However, some brewers prefer to rehydrate dry yeasts as they think it speeds up the start of fermentation.

How do I rehydrate dry yeast?

To rehydrate yeast, simply add around 300ml of lukewarm water to a sanitised conatainer, and add the content of the packet then cover with a layer of tin foil. You will notice that after an hour or so, the yeast will start to buble and activate.

Storage Recommendation

How do I store my dry yeast?

Store in the fridge or dry and cool place.

How long can I store my dry yeast for?

Dry yeast can be stored for extended periods of time. Please refer to the package for the best before date.
