getting my first wash together. will be a UJSSM wash. I want to use EC-1118. Do I need to rehydrate or build a starter using portion of wort or can I just dry apply to wash? 8 gallon wash using 2 packets EC-1118. Thanks, B.

Follow the directions - I don't think you do either with this product

"+1 heeler - do what the manufacturer recommends.

For some applications, EC-1118 will work fine without rehydrating. But ... the package & spec sheet does not recommends rehydrating in the wash/must. It's not a big deal.

You can boil about 2 o"

Thank you for the information. After reading all the posts on starters and the benefits, was wondering if this would help to insure a good population prior to pitching. B.

I dont make starters with this yeast, I just sprinkle on top or the wort. Remember this yeast is not a violent fermenter like a turbo would be but that's how this one works. In a week or so open the lid on your fermenter and see if it's still got a -- sizzle to it. That's kinda how this yeast finishes, with a nice quite sizzle. Your airlock may even be still but your wash may still have that sizzle to it which means it's close but but not done yet.

Thanks, From the posts I have read on yeasts and fermentation I feel this yeast is better suited to this recipe than bakers as far as a cleaner ferment and less possibility of creating off flavors. I will pay attention to the "sizzle" and check with hydrometer for completion. I appreciate all the help. B.

Hey Backwash, how'd that ferment come out?? Did you get to see the sizzle we talked about? That yeast will eat all the sugar you used no dought and that means a complete finish, anyway hope your likker comes out good."

Heeler, No wash yet. Waiting on a triclamp adapter from BH. Then 2 cleaning runs and a cheap wine wash. Have enough propane on hand to launch the shuttle. Just some fiddly bits to put together. Thanks, B.
