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?

    My Favourite Yeast
    Review by Craigon 10/11/2016
    Firstly, not a big fan of these smack packs, I sometimes have trouble breaking the bubble but this yeast is now my favourite. Using no fancy heating gadgets just the home central heating (approx 18-22C depending which room and time of day) I can brew a moderately strong malty ale in a week. After sampling my first bottle after one week clearing I was amazed at the clean taste and had to check I had opened the right bottle.

    Great, clean fermenting yeast. Watch for attenuation.
    Review by Martinon 09/06/2016
    Produced lovely, clean flavoured strong ale. Achieved 78% attenuation, quite a bit above published 71% average.

    Easy to use, didn't take off straight away
    Review by Granton 31/10/2013
    I ordered this in a rush and got it the following day - thanks! This is the first smack pack I've used. Very straightforward and the pack swelled as expected. Added to my wort at 76F and waited. And waited. Took 2.5 days but it finally took off and was bubbling for a full two weeks (OG: 1.096). Think I may have cooled the wort too much too early, which accounts for the delayed onset of fermentation.
    Would definitely use this yeast again. High attenuation and easy to use - great for strong ales! Just make sure you keep it at the upper end of the temp range for the first day or two.
