Subject: Here's how I start yeast
Date: 1990-01-26 15:01:00 GMT


I put a cup of filtered (reverse-osmosis) water into a pyrex measuring cup
and then pop it in the microwave for five minutes or so (to get it good
and hot). I toss the water into a plastic container, cover it with a
saucer and wait for it to cool to 90F or so. Once it has, I open up the
package of dry yeast and pour it in.

I usually perform this procedure when I'm starting the boil (since it takes
overnight for the wort to cool).
