Directions for use Rehydration:

In order to restore the dried yeast to its fully active viable state, it is necessary to rehydrate the yeast as rapidly as possible by adding the yeast to 10 times its mass of water. The recommended dose is 1 gram of yeast/1 liter of wort at 36°C with constant vigorous agitation. Stir for 5 minutes before adding the yeast to the washback. Allowing the yeast to remain at 36°C for longer than the stipulated time period can negatively affect alcohol yields. storage and handling DistilaMax® MW should be stored in a dry area away from extreme temperature variations and moisture for maximum stability. When stored under these conditions, the product is stable for 36 months from the date of manufacture.
