I didn’t really mean to sidetrack this thread into English pedantry, but I will anyway...We don’t recommend aerating the wort in normal conditions" pedant or not how in real terms is this different to
We recommend people do not aerate the wort in normal conditions.
We recommend you = we think you should
We do not recommend you = we’re not saying you should
We recommend you do not = we’re saying you shouldn’t
As an example, the very next Q&A from the Fermentis website:
Do you recommend using a rehydrating agent?
We actually do not recommend any rehydrating agent. Even though it will not harm the yeasts, we don’t see any positive effect with our range. In fact, we believe that if there is an effect, it is related to the nutrients added in fermentation. So, adjusting the nutrition in the fermentation is more than enough.
That’s not saying don’t use a rehydrating agent, that’s saying it’s not necessary.
Or on more of a tangent, it’s like the difference between guilty, not guilty and innocent.
I don’t have any inclinations on the use of dry yeast I’m trying to justify, just on the use of the English language
