I just received my Wyeast smack-pack, and it appears to be puffed up already. Is this an indicator that it has already been activated?

    Good, stable flavour (not horse)
    Review by hughon 25/04/2016
    This yeast has never let me down. I brew 100 litres at a time in our experimental maltings and brewery. I propagate the Wyeast packet in 4 litres of a dried malt extract culture at 20 centigrade, stirred and aerated. In four days it is perfect for pitching into 100 litres of wort.

    Tasty yeast
    Review by Mikeon 10/12/2015
    Ordered WLP 028 but got this instead ! So I thought that i'd give it a try as it was going to be used for 3 batches of beer after being grown in a suitable starter first.
    The 1st beer made was a malt forward, Old Ale / Scottish Heavy style. It had an OG of 13.6 and finished at about 3 which was the expected final gravity. 3 months later it has produced a very easy drinking Ale with a good balance of malt and hop bitterness.
    The 2nd batch was a Sweet Stout, which was left to ferment for nearly 3 weeks in primary and also finished at the expected FG. However !! The last time I used WY 1318, which was much more suited for a sweet stout (Mackesons export).
    3rd batch was another Old Ale that had 1/2 lb of unrefined brown sugar added to the end of the boil along with a few de-seeded Tapas chillies and 1lb of honey when cooled down to 176F. A very large starter was used for this one and it finished at the expected gravity. This yeast has complimented the ingredients really well and the chillies are noticeable but not Fiery, just warm. Which works well as it's about 7% ABV

    So for an Old Ale or Scottish Heavy this yeast will get your batch of beer finished with really nice results.
    I made a 1.5 litre starter with 5.3 oz DME using 80ml of 4 week old slurry for the chilli beer. I think it ended up being about 240 Billion cells of yeast, slightly big but great results !

    Didn't activate properly
    Review by Oliveron 09/11/2013
    I got this yeast to brew my christmas Ale with. At the start of my brew day session I followed the steps to activate the yeast then left it whilst I continued with preparing my equipment and boiling up my extract kit.

    Three hours after activating, preparing my wort and topping up with water it was time to add my yeast. However to my surprise the package hadn't swollen much at all! Looking on the back it said that it does not need to have swollen to be used and so I went ahead with pitching my yeast. After pouring it out I opened up the package to check the activator pouch had broken and found that the pouch was in two separate halves and only half of the pouch had split. The other half was still in tact explaining the lack of inflation.

    The yeast went on to ferment my ale down to the expected final gravity however this is the first time I've had this happen with a WYeast Activator and it has worried me for the next time I use one!
