Has anyone tried re-hydrating RJS's Dried skins with boiling Water allowing to steep for 20 mins then adding skins and water to the kit?

Any good reason not to try this?

With barley and coffee these temperatures would cause over extraction of bitter compounds. I'd taste test a sample to make sure something unpleasant isn't extracted at those temps.

I'd just do an EM and let them soak in the must for a couple extra weeks.

Twice now with dried skins from an RJS RQ kit I've done a "cold soak" for two days then added yeast and did the extended maceration. First one turned out very well, just started second the other day.
