    The quality of dry yeast has improved substantially over the last few years to the point that I use it exclusively. And I never aerate the wort. I have not been able to discern any noticeable difference in finished product quality.

    We had a fermentis rep at a club meeting recently, he said that 1.060 is the dividing line
    If you are 1060 or less there is no need to aerate with most of their strains
    for gravity over 1060 they do recommend aerating

    I mostly use Fermentis and don’t brew many beers over 1.060. Did the rep discuss pitch rate?

    Makes sense... we’ve never brewed using aeration other than the splash from the BK to the FV.

    The discussion was 5 gallon batch, 1060 or less, one package, no need to aerate. Sorry, further questions didn't come to mind
