Fermentis’ innovative E2U™ (“Easy to Use”) yeasts offer the option of pitching directly into wort without rehydrating, saving you time and money and allowing you to get more done with fewer people. Extensive testing has shown no change in flavor, aroma, color, or alcohol % regardless of preparation method used (normal rehydration, cold or hot water, or direct pitching).
