Rehydrating the dry yeast in 90 degree water for 20 to 60 minutes seems to work
the best. Then, when pitching, just pour the liquid into the primary. If you
are using a carboy for the primary, then put a clean cork on the top and shake,
rattle, or roll the carboy to mix everything up. No spoon is needed. Since
aeration is necessary to reoxygenate the wort after boiling, you are killing
two birds with one stone.
Lately, though, I have just been using liquid yeast, from WYeast. I am forced
to make a starter just to build up the amount of yeast. I would like to hear
how other people are doing it.
