Direct Pitching:
Pitch the yeast directly in the fermentation vessel on the surface of the wort at or above the fermentation temperature.
Sprinkle the yeast in a minimum of 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort (we suggest 110ml) at 21 to 25 °C. Do not stir. Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.
