    New research on dry yeast

    I've always read and understood to just rehydrate using only sterile water, but in the latest US-05 spec sheet linked by MHB in the pitching with prior rehydration instructions it says "Alternatively, sprinkle the yeast in minimum 10 times its weight of sterile water or boiled and hopped...

    Control box - test - fail

    Forget testing voltages, or powering anything on yet. For now you just want to check for continuity and for shorts.
