To "pitch" your yeast you should rehydrate for 20 minutes first:
Use room temperature or luke warm good drinking water (filtered and/or boiled) - 50mls for 5gms yeast. Then add your yeast.
Stir gently - it will clump but don't worry about that as it will even out as it rehydrates. Leave to sit for 20 minutes.
