And the other question is - do I use the whole 10 grams? As it says you can use the contents for up to 23 litres even though I'm only making 4.5 litres.
Thanks in advance
To be honest I wouldn't bother rehydrating the yeast and pitch the whole amount. If you pitch the whole sachet there will be more than enough healthy yeast to ferment out the beer.
The only reason you may want to split the sachet of yeast is if you were brewing another beer otherwise I would just pitch the whole thing.
