Going onto my 5th brew, a double IPA, with an OG of 1.087! I have the equipment to prepare a yeast starter, however, I didn’t realize that yeast starters should only be used with liquid yeast. The kit I purchased came with dry yeast packets.
Should I re-hydrate the yeast, and then simply pitch it? With a giant OG like that, will fermentation stall, or be delayed?
I have an extra yeast pack that I was hoping to add prior to bottling to ensure carbonation, should I use that instead and pitch both packets?
Or do people make yeast starters with dry yeast?
Let me know, thanks!
